There could be a number of things wrong:
Bad fuel pump
Plugged fuel filter
Idle too low
Check all lines. When it was restored. Were all lines replaced? A cracked line sometimes is hard to see. Inspect and replace any cracked, broken and hardened lines.
Is compression good?
How does the car drive? Does it have good power? What is fuel economy like? All are indications of overall health of motor.
You need to get in there and do some troubleshooting. Measure the dwell, timing, check the vacuum. (on an old car, vacuum gauge was the tool to determine a whole variety of ailments, way before there was OBD2.) Compression check.
You get the idea. More information and we can help you find the problem.
Hope this helps.
