First the cheap things.Check the fuel filter.If the car has set for a long time the carb might need rebuilt.One or more of the jet passages might have been clogged by varnish from evaporated gasoline or dirt from the gas tank.The fuel pump could also be ready to give up the ghost.If the car will rev freely out of gear then i'm kinda lost.
