Cheap possibility: Fuel filter or screen, IIRC, that carb has a screw in filter that can be replaced in about 2 minutes. It could be a $5. fix. (starving for fuel, the quick pump of the carb gives it a little squirt from the accelerator pump. the time it takes you to try it again lets the carb bowl refill) That would be a likely trouble if your car has a cruddy old tank, rubber sections in the fuel line, or the original fuel pump. Even more likely if the gas in your area has MBTE or ethanol in it.

If you are a little mechanically inclined, try this:

Go to NAPA and get a fuel filter and a carb rebuild kit, for around $20 or so.

The fuel filter is probably clogged if it hasn't been replaced in awhile. The carb may not need a rebuild, but it sure wouldn't hurt, and its hard to tell whether that's the problem if you are not used to messing with carburetors. You can rebuild the carb on a bench or table in a couple hours, its just disassembly and assembly (lay out the parts in order as you take it apart, then put it back together in reverse...). I did my first carb at 16 with no help, while my little sister annoyed me -- if I can do it you can do it.

I think Biggarmike may be onto the problem, I had that with my 69 Maverick (same engine and carb as yours!)

Good luck and let us know how you do.
