Sounds like choke adjustment is off a bit. Thats about the only thing it could be if it runs fine when warm. You'll have to look up how to adjust the choke for that carb or car. Should be simple though.

Agree on the issue mist likely in the choke. What type if carb are you running? Holley, edlebrock?

This car belongs to a brotherly friend of mines....The carb is stock but I think he told me that he was going to replace it with a bigger 550cfm edelbrock.
Since I'm on here lemme ask u this, What would cause a power steering system using vacuum assist operate sluggish? Low vacuum right? Or a faulty accumulator? Also the ac blows only to the floor.
