I would freshen the 305 and consider adding throttle body fuel injection to it. MSD and Holley make such units.

The throttle body is a good idea, Bob- a 20th century solution- but updating that car with modern systems would require a new drivetrain and electrical system- it can be done, but, by a pro- and expensive-

After all the time and expense in a project like that it would be a "resto- mod"- buy a copy of Hot Rod magazine and see how people are updating the old cars-
