Check the fuel tank venting, a fuel pump can't pull if there is a vacuum on the tank, if that checks good then replace the fuel pump if your sure it is a fuel starvation problem. Points and condensers were cause of most of the running problems back then, so make sure you keep a set with you and the tools to replace them. HTH
