Welcome!

If the car has Stromberg carburetors please check the "T" on the fuel lines between the carbs. If it is plastic, that was original on the car, replace it immediately with a metal "T". Any fuel leak drops down on the distributor and sadly you car goes up in smoke.

Just like the great suggestion of replacing the timing belt, all rubber hoses, lines and tires should be replaced. 30+ year old rubber has certainly dried out and if not already leaking is prone to leak when "tested" or put under pressure. All fluids should also be changed.

You'll get great advice here ....
