You didn't mention the year of the car, I have a 74 and it has a starter/seat belt interrupt system. It could be a similar system in your car was bypassed. In bypassing the circuit the wiring could be skewed, meaning the cable connections may be poor and causing amperage spikes not normal for the circuit. Its odd the car has to be driven a long time for it to first accrue. That circuit is only used during crank so the path of the wiring may be some of the problem, meaning you may have wiring hitting some hot metal or exhaust areas. Having said that depending on where the fuse is located your ignition switch could be the problem as well. I am no 914 expert but have had a lot of electrical experience over the past 20 years. Good luck and stay on the safe side of the wiring curve...
