Presuming that the Pertronix coil is the type that works without a ballast resistor, that your valves are sealing and your compression is good, and that the cam timing is correct, the carbs are about all that's left.

Unfortunately, you may find that tuning the carbs is not sufficient to get the car into perfect running order.  Like all other carburetors, Strombergs are subject to wear, and eventually one reaches the point where parts replacements are essential.  The difference in performance between a car using well-worn Strombergs, and completely overhauled ones, can be surprising.
