I've had my 58 for 30 years now but it's finally got me. I've always done all my own work so I'm familiar with the car. I had a carb issue and rebuilt it. I still had trouble getting into the secondaries when the motor had been running for 1/2 an hour and found advancing the timing helped. But the pinging was very evident and on the way home this morning from a small trip sputtered and missed to the driveway and wouldn't start. Car cooled and started perfectly, ran okay. No points, I did the electronic conversion but can only think it might be the coil at this point. Doesn't make sense why only when hot and driven for more than 30 minutes.
