It is most likely your starter solenoid, getting a case of heat soak.Do a search on this topic it has come up many times.

i agree with 67drake. i just had the same thing happen to me with my 68. after some city driving turned the car off for a few minutes. then nothing when i tried to restart it. had to let it sit for almost 2hours before the solenoid was cool enough to start. I just ordered a starter heat sheild, hopefully this will solve the problem.
