Considering that it has to have starter fluid to start, and blows more smoke than a DC politician on November 1st, I assume that means start with rebuilding the carbs. Am I correct?
Maybe a cylinder leakdown test just to confirm it's basically sound before starting any work on it.

I would be concerned about that smoke. It may be nothing serious but you need to figure out what it is. It could be just buildup in the exhaust. Check the coolant reservoir and radiator, is there any sign of oil in the coolant and is the radiator full? Check the engine oil, is it overfull and smell like gasoline?
