One possibility: Intake manifold gasket is wrinkled or doesn't cover the port correctly and that cylinder is pulling in oily crankcase vapors when the intake valve is open on that cylinder. This does not explain the dry carbon on the plug. I'd begin some detective work on the distributor cap and wires.
