I would suspect a vacuum leak. At idle under high vacuum the air fuel mix is being leaned out until you have misfiring so bad the engine quits. The exhaust smells rich because even a lean mixture, if it doesn't light off, if full of unburned fuel. At road speeds, the vacuum is low so the engine doesn't care if there is a small leak somewhere. It is getting most of its air through the open throttle. Check all your vacuum lines but remember that even if every line is okay, it could still be leaking from an old cracked intake manifold gasket.

Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.
