Also maybe check fuel level in float bowls, too low would run lean.

And did it ever run OK after carb rebuild? Maybe wrong needles - but if carbs are the same a bit of choke would fix that at any given RPM / temp.

Barring defective new parts, a 1960s car should run fine without needing mods. Plenty of us put plenty of miles on cars with carbs and points. They wouldn't go 100k miles w/o maintenance but worked well with newish good parts.

yup, ran good after carb re-build....or so I am told
The car basically sat for the last two years because it would not start
I am going to play with the carburetor suggestions from the advise below and go from there ....you see all the items I have replaced new (and enjoyed doing it) since I no longer have a ride!

You need to get a ride. You have had some nice stuff run through your hands. I know of a top notch Spridget that will be available this fall.
