Yes, a coil could get hot and fail but not as often was you imply. Driven in desert without issues.  Have you checked the black wire from the distributor to the coil?  They break inside the insulation. Check your ground of the points to the plate. Check all connections that might change when hot. Let us know what you find.

Finally thought I'd nailed it.  My 66 Monza convertible was running great after I had the carbs rebuilt and adjusted the points and timing.  It was sputtering at high rpm before. Drove to the hardware store and parked it.  Came out and it started right up. Drove 1/2 Mile and it dropped dead. After I got it towed home it started right up.  I thought it was a vapor lock, but it was 55 degrees.  I pulled my the filler tube AND vent tube....no clogs. How about coil? Given the high temperature of the air cooled engine compartment, these could must expire fairly often.   I'll try a new one but this car knows when I'm far from home.   Shoulda joined triple A
