What year? If it's a 72-3, suspect the throttle valve switch. You can test this 
by disconnecting the switch for a few days and seeing if the miss goes away 
while driving.

Otherwise, check the SP connectors for their 1000 Ohms, and the spark plugs 
themselves for wear (rounded electrodes.)

Is your gas mileage okay?
