R80 dies out after short distance,

I need help understanding why my R80 (1983) dies after only a short distance displaying no electrical power to the ignition (but there is power to the volt meter and clock)- it then restarts after a few hours rest only to die once again after another short distance.- same problem repeating itself.
Any advice or explanation allowing me to correct this problem would be greatly appreciated.
