How are your engine mounts, transmission mount and guibo?

 

Any other funny noises when driving?

Is your clutch disengaging?

 

Sit still on a level road, no brakes, foot down on clutch and in gear. Any movement? How’s the idle speed?

You don’t make any sense. Please organize your letters and punctuation so that others can understand you. 

 

 

How long did it take you to drive 300 miles in first gear ?

You broken your drvers' side motor mount.

 

Try letting the clutch out with the hood open- watch 

the engine to see if it hops out of the bay...

Or if you have an early car (pre 1971), the right side motor mount bracket itself may be cracked/broken.  Early brackets are a single piece of bent-over metal and stress fracture.  Later ones are welded up and much sturdier.

Stock Solex Carburetor?

 

Could be it flooding itself due to a failed diaphragm, causing your bucking, spurts and stutters. 

 

Will it flood and stall?

We definitely need some more information to diagnose.

 

To test your mounts as Toby recommends, it isn't about reving, it's about applying a load.

 

Have your foot on the brake and let out the clutch a little so that it wants to stall the motor. If the motor doesn't move dramatically, then that isn't your problem.

questioning effectiveness of communication, here. 

 

MB, at a stop with the car in 1st and the hood open,

and a safe amount of room in front of you,

try to drive away with the emergency brake pulled. 

 

This will 100% rule out what's happened to me twice now. 

Your initial description of what's happening makes it a likely possibility.

I would be inclined to prop hood open for this exercise.
