I recently almost finished the restauration on my 62 MK2, it runs nice but after 40km the engine starts to sputter and runs rough.
The ignition coil is boiling hot, can that be the problem?

Further up the creek.

Also check your fuel filter. Very small corrosion particles (from inside the petrol tank) can build up (over 40km for example) and block (or partially block) the filter leading to rough running. Leave the car for a while and these particles can fall to the power portion of the filter allowing fuel to flow again for a while.
