Its either the ignition coil or a carb needing an overhaul.

If you have a mechanical fuel pump then due to heat the diaphragm creates a vaccum and stops pumping fuel. It was very typical problem during summers in old Ambys & Fiats. Pouring water on the pump used to solve this problem.

I dunno what car you own, but since you mentioned it is a carb driven vehicle, this also could be one of the causes..
