I had this sort of issue with 73' Chevelle. Turned out the wire were rubbing on the hot engine block. It started fine when cold but when those wires got hot it shut off but showed i still had power. I would try that 1st.

thanks lisa, not a wire issue though


Was it the radiator? Engine not cooling properly.
