It took nearly a month for the car to arrive and I set right in, getting it sorted.

The car started, but ran very very rough, and wanted to stall out on tickover.
I found some issues with the car, and I was surprised that it ran at all!
The cap was missing the conductor pin, so the spark had to jump from the top of the cap, down to the rotor top!

The carbs were in poor shape, in fact one caught on fire.

And the venturi were destroyed, leaving metal fragments imbedded in the filter screen.

I had both carbs rebuilt and after a good while adjusting them to get everything right, all was well. A full tune up and it was running decent again.
