Runs fine at idle but rpms drop and tries to stall during takeoff. Any thoughts would be helpful.

is it the stock I6 motor with a carter carb on it, if so it sounds like clogged idle tubes, it a common problem with these carbs, can be fixed without removing carb, plenty of articles on the internet
even the most primitive society has an intimate respect for the insane

I believe 71 or 72 was the last year for a V6 (Buick).
