Check the mufflers they may be plugged up these cars were not designed to run ethanol fuel. When hot rusted baffles may collapse..

I would suspect an issue with fuel delivery. Maybe the carbs are due for a rebuild.

Check your fuel pump make sure your getting good delivery

Check fuel pump to see you are getting a good delivery make sure there is nothing blocking suction line in the tank
