the charge system is canabalized with weird things I have never seen done 
The engine was running but sounds like it has huge exhaust leak,  it stalled  it after about 2 miles driving, I pulled  it home to my house , the painter had family problems so he stopped work it was in a his work Garge for 5 months , I rebuild holly, m12 trans out of a machine , battery could be shot , the engine was rebuilt when I got car 1 year ago since then all maintenance done for a car that’s been sitting 
I’m thinking timing ,

i would start at the engine make sure the battery fully charged check for spark first then bring the number one piston to top dead and pull the cap check the location of the rotor  for timing issue then I might think about changing the coil to known good one it also could have a plugged pick up sock in the tank from bad gas  other things to look at is cam gear  make sure your getting fuel on the exhaust leak if it has headers they are known to hit the head bolt on the bottom side and need to be clearance  to fit proper or you might have to check the bolt on the manifolds  if it has the old heat riser in the exhaust system make sure its all there I have seen the shaft slide out causing a leak and now the charging system the Motorola system i my experience were  always having issues not charging so converted mine to a 2 wire gm alt or get a schismatic and start rewire the thing  hope this gave you a place to start good luck on the project keep us informed

thank you for help I’m so confused at 67 I’m not quite the same guy when I had my old 69 in 71
But that makes sense , no headers , I think the donut to pipe off exhaust manifold is bad 
And this enigne should run like a top ...
