Missing once warmed up

Just bought an '85 Toyota Corolla DX sedan with (hopefully) a minor problem. When I first drove it, it was missing regardless of revs or temp, so I figured it probably needed the plugs and points replaced. So I replaced the plugs, then took it out for drive - it was still missing when accelerating, but once at a constant speed it was fine, until it warmed up, then it started playing up again. It seems to be fine at any temp at high revs (have no gauge so at a guess I'd say.... 3500-4000rpm). Is it likely to be points? Or something more sinister?

The Corollas that came here did not get points. All of our 1985 Toyota models are electronic ignition....

That being said, you could have bad ignition wires if you have a miss...they should be replaced if cracked and brittle. Also the condenser should be replaced any time you change the points.
