Did you noticed the spark plug wires has deteriorated due to age? If so, there could be an arcing in the wires and the proper voltage is not delivered to the spark plug to fire the air-fuel creating a misfire. Check this at night in your garage, arcing can be viewed at dark, and if there's an arcing replace the wires, and if none, better check the ignition coil.
