1976 280 possible fuel filter issue??

Hello World,
Today while driving to work my Merc just gave out on me. I was driving along and once I let off the gas, the car just stalled out. Anyone experience this issue before?

The car kick right up and starts as long as you are pushing the gas pedal. It drives if you are giving it gas but as soon as I lift off the accelerator, DEAD!!

For the record, the car has been driving great. Only issue is when I cold start in the mornings, it usually takes 3 tries and she will start and sputter til warm... Please any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Levet
