Gummed up gas in the lines? Clogged fuel filter? I had a old motor home that sat for a few decades and the pickup screen tank was clogged. That was a pretty extreme case of gas gone bad though 9about everything was clogged). Should still run if a fuel is introduced manually into the carburetor, or pull the input line off the carb and gravity feed gas the in.

Or you just flooded it. If that's starting fluid you're using, that's a great way to burn a engine up and/or start a fire.

Anytime I have anything sitting for awhile I pour a gallon of two of diesel in the tank, and let it sit for a day, then come back and fill the rest up with fresh gas.

Anyways, that's a nice looking car.
