I would have the timing checked. Make sure your fuel is good, add octane booster. Lastly, you may have a severe carbon issue.

Thanks Roy. I just added fuel to it, 93 octane. By timing do you mean the timing belt?

Not in 1967. You have points, which should be set to.018 and timing of the distributor which should be set at TDC.
