I did the Weber retro-fit on a previous 250C, and it really transformed the driving experience...depends on whether you're planning on actually driving the car and enjoying it, or trying to keep it original for some future investment value. Ctaylor738 is right on; personally, if my current 250C was in need of a carb job, I wouldn't think twice.
To get it running really well, there's a Mallory distributor (from a 70s Jaguar application I believe) that fits with minimal tweaking. I think my mechanic had to have some minor machine work done, which was the most expensive part.
