The first two things I would check would be for vacuum leaks. (Dry-rotted vacuum hoses, fittings, etc.) Another thing you'll want to check is your EGR valve. When an EGR valve sticks open, it will allow exhaust gases to enter the intake, causing rough idle and sometimes stalls. While the engine is running, tap on the EGR valve gently with the ****-end of a screwdriver and see if the problem clears up.
Being this old of a car, I'm willing to bet it's a vacuum leak, but you're the one with your eyes on it. :)
Good luck and I hope this helps! :)

Hi Sheldon are the breaker points clean, and are they opening when the cam comes to the high point. There should be a gap of 1-1.5 mm when the cam is at its highest. A quick way To check for spark turn the engine until the points are fully closed then hold a lead with a plug in it to the cylinder head. Then with a screwdriver manually open and close the points. Do this with the ignition on and you should see a spark. Good Luck.
