I have a fully restored 1964 Chevy Corvair Spydier 150 hp turbo
She stalls in mid ride a few minutes after start for no reason. New battery.
All power to the entire car goes dead. After a few hours she will start like nothing happened and will drive fine for a few hours or a few days and will stall again.
Sounds like a grounding issue but where?

I don't believe it is a grounding issue, more likely a power supply issue.

A grounding issue should have some components working erratically.

Recheck the battery terminal connections, clean and retighten if necessary. Check the fusible links from battery to main fuse box and from fuse box to the ignition switch.

The ground wire goes to the body in the rear and there is a little wire to the block. Check them for corrosition.
