Before you do anything else put an inductive timing light on it and make sure it is in time. If you don't have one get a loaner from one of the big auto parts store. They should have one. This is just to make sure the distributor has not lost timing.
If this checks out take a look at the points and under the distributor cap. Make sure the points are clean and there is no condensation or carbon tracking on the cap. While it is running in the dark see if you have a strong spark from the high tension lead coming from the coil.
It is unlikely the rings would go bad suddenly, but check the oil and make sure you have not blown a head gasket. Also you can smell antifreeze burning in the exhaust. I smells like celery.

It is possible to have a leak between cylinders without water entering the cylinders. A compression gauge would tell.
If all the rest checks out you might have to take the valve cover off and see if the valves are properly timed and the camshaft gear has not jumped.
