Backfire Then Engine Dies in 76 930

Last summer I drove my stock 76 930 on the freeway. Got stuck in some traffic and while just barely starting to accelerate from a dead stop in traffic, I heard a loud backfire. Not sure if it came from the intake or exhaust, but I would say more likely an intake backfire. Sounded like it was right behind me. The engine then died. I coasted to the side of the road and then tried starting the engine. It started right up and I was able to accelerate back into freeway traffic with no problem. It happened a second time a couple of days later under similar conditions. What would cause this? Recommendations on where to start troubleshooting? It's one of those intermittent issues.
