1967! 427 / 400 hp car was missing very badly installed new plugs wires new voltage regulator, new distributor cap, a solid state ignition and had the three carbs rebuilt correct timing and it is hard starting now breaks up badly at 3500 rpms and falls on its face it will idle but when cold I have to keep the revs at 1500-1800 to keep her running the battery seems to be in the normal center position oil pressure is good about 1/4 of a tank of fuel right now

It sounds like you are starving for fuel. Have you looked inside the fuel tank for rust? Some of these rust particles maybe clogging your fuel system. The higher the demand for fuel flow and you start getting your sputtering. Let us know and good luck!
