A timing light is simple to use and not expensive.  Its not difficult to suck on a hose and see if the vacuum advance is working either.  You said it didn't have any convertors so the only way a manifold can glow red hot at idle is if the ignition timing is WAY OFF.  There's no way in hell that car will boost and drive with the base timing so screwed up.

Let someone else profit from this Indy... as long as he isn't parting out / junking it and it goes to a good home everybody wins!  :)

also never said it glows red at idle it glows red after maybe 15 20 min of driving... my mech said the timing was advanced.. car bogs when giving any type of throttle over 30%.. just done with it.. rather use the money towards my mustang.. cant afford both cars

Any guy with an older car especially a restored one in his driveway is going to have a timing light in his garage.  Every shop is going to have one.  Auto parts stores may even loan if you don't want to buy it just like they do those code checkers. All you do is clip its lead around the #1 spark plug wire,  you attach the two clips to your battery termnals to give it power and you aim it at the crank pulley and pull the trigger.  Loosen that nut on the distributor and rotate the distributor until, while the engine is idling, the mark on the pulley lines up with the mark on the timing cover at 10 BTDC.  It won't take 60 seconds. WHY did this "mechanic" not do this?  He knows how simple it is.  It even tells that on a sticker under the hood.  Why didn't you ask him to do that?  You think anyone is going to buy it when it runs like crap and you're going to get money for it when you might fix it so quickly and so easily you'd get MORE MONEY for it afterward.  Even if he wants 100.00 to do it you're way ahead.  He should do it for FREE.  We won't even begin to go into what else you should check like does it have the right spark plugs in it.  You're the one losing money we're just trying to help.
