I'll open with a vacuum leak. Before the age of throttle positions sensors and idle air solenoids, vacuum leaks would cause a stall condition at idle. Look at the hoses first. If everything looks good, get the codes read if you can make it to a shop or parts store.

MECHANIC says he has to replace the entire throttle body for $600. Is this for real?
