Great car, this are really an under appreciated car. In regards to the carbs, the most comon issue is that the throttle shaft bearings lose their seal and the carbs start to pull air in through them. There's no chance of ever getting to run right if thats the case. There are a couple ways to solve the issue, some pricey some not.
Some guys I worked around in California (Carobu Engineering) did a great "resto-rod" with one of these. They blnded the bumpers, use larger diameter center spline mag's, rebuilt a hot rodded 412 engine. It's a beautiful car.
Hope it treats you well!
