302 acceleration issue and alternator light!

so I got some free time to mess with my 68 mercury montego today and took it to get gas, first thing I noticed was behind the gas door in the crease between the gas filler tank and the quarter panel it is filled with water...I think that may be because the gas lid doesnt have a seal but I may be wrong. The main issue that I had was the car accelerating normally and slowly but when I tried to full throttle or burn out in the parking lot the car cut off and stalled, I started up the car and the same thing happened, then in park when I was revving the car everytime I revved the red alternator light on the dash came on, is that normal? I figure fuel or ignition problem not sure, i havent tuned it up since I bought it so I dont know if its because of that either.
