If it's original to the car, have it professionally rebuilt by someone who REALLY knows Q-Jets and has the right parts; don't just "throw a kit in it".

I bought a rebuilt q-jet from Sean Murphey Induction in CA. He will jet per your specs, uses quality parts and quick delivery. The carb was around 350.00 to the door. Check out his web http://www.smicarburetor.com/

does he put them on a engine just to check to be sure that the mechanicals are working? 'cause I don't see how he can assume it's tuned correctly if it's not on a similiar motor to which it's being mounted. ???
