My son recently reported problems with the '67. Specifically, after several hours of on-the-road driving, the car seems to overheat and lose power. We don't seem to have problems with jaunts around town. It's not the water level or the oil level, and seems related to electrical. Can the heat of 4 hours on the road be having an effect on the alternator? Other suggestions? Thanks.
(The car is a 1967, straight 6 200 cubic inches with no modifications to speak of, standard transmission. Recently rebuilt)
