I had something similar years ago. IIRC, my fuel filters were clogged. Enough fuel would seep thru the fuel filters when the car was sitting for a period of time but the engine would die after a while from fuel starvation.

Also, what changes with heat on your carb setup? My Zenith Strombergs have an air bypass valve that would open when hot and cause rough idling.

I also think your idea of the electronic ignition failing when hot is a possibility. Do you have a way to check if you are getting a good spark when this happens?

Good luck. Hope it is something simple and cheap to fix.
