Did you install new points? (Assuming you haven't upgraded to an electronic ignition). If you have did you gap them properly? If you didn't install new points, could be that your old ones are dirty. My '63 Star Chief is somewhat notorious for the points getting dirty if the car sits for a couple months. When this happens, it either won't start or will start and run like crap (spitting, coughing, etc.). Something you might look at, anyway.
