Thanks folks for your help.
Trying to make a bit more sense than an episode from the Twilight Zone, let me report the following:
As mentioned earlier, the only item that I could find amiss were my points, which were somewhat pitted. Though I was sure that this could not be the root of the problem, I decided to replace them anyway. Did not bother to reset them as when the engine died, they were completely closed, so I simply put them back in exactly, or very darn close, to their original position.
Before reinstalling the points, however, I noticed that the PARKING LIGHTS were on. That was very strange, because I had left the truck overnight with all lights off, the ignition key completely turned off, and the key pulled completely out of the ignition switch. Not knowing how the parking lights could possibly be on the next morning, with the key out, and suspecting some kind of short, I pulled the fuse which governed the parking lights, and, as expected, they went off.
After a few minutes, I put the fuse back in, just to see what might happen, and, inexplicably, the parking lights STAYED OFF. I had (and have) no idea how this could be possible, but not wanting to risk any type of electrical complication, I pulled the parking light fuse once again.
After that, I cleaned up the dizzy cap and rotor, both of which were a bit greasy and worn, then installed my new points in the same position that the old ones were in. I cranked the ignition switch, and "viola" the truck started.
I drove it home and today, reinstalled the fuse, installed a new brake light and started her up. No problem whatsoever, all lights working, and the truck starting with no problem as long as all of the lights were turned off. It did refuse to start immediately when turning on the high beams, however, so there still maybe some kind of electrical issue going on. Again, however, both the battery and coil are only a few weeks old.
Important to note is that, I only gave a cursory glance to my spark plug wires when originally trouble shooting the problem because I assumed that when I had the truck "completely rewired" a few weeks ago, that the electrician had changed the spark plug wires as well. Today, however, I found that this was not the case and that the number one plug cover was cracked and brittle. Perhaps hitting the bump caused it to lose enough conductivity to let the spark escape and stall the truck, and that was the original cause of the stall? Still doesn't explain the parking lights being on with the key off, however.
In any case, I taped up the cracked wire and the truck is running well again. Will replace the wires, dizzy cap and rotor as soon as I can find the parts.
Does anyone have a rational explanation for any of the above?
At least she is running again now, so thanks to all of you, for your input.
