If it will start with a prime, but won't stay running, then the fuel system is plugged up either in the carb,fuel pump, gas lines or at the tank..

OK...I'm not trying to be an A hole but there's no real way WE can judge over the internet whether a specific car that we've never seen in person or really know anything about will run or not. Cause right now anything we've said is practically 100% guess work based on the minute (small) amount of info you've been able to give us, and any general knowledge we have on engines/cars.

What you really need to do is find someone where you live that knows about cars and ask them or them to actually look at it. Cause there's no way in hell we can do that and still be any actual use to you.

You are taking chances with a car that wont run, Sounds like a "restoration" project. Could be costly.
