Steve, Trying to do a diagnosis remotely is hit or miss. but  taking your 
data as fact, I'd say this.....

OK, car quit running. If it were the fuel, then one can assume that  the 
carb bowls ran dry. that would mean a loooong run of the starter to refill  
the bowls to get it started. You did not indicate that.
That leaves the ignition.
And as suggested before the coil is the most  likely culprit.
Do you have a timing light? See what that shows  when the engine is 
running. Connect the light to the center of the cap  wire.
When it does run, what does the exhaust sound  like? Uniform purrrr or putt 
putt putt or just a jumble of  sounds?

this is ignition  problem.
