Replacement carb or rebuild?

I just bought a CJ-7 and its in excellent shape except the carb is messed up. The choke won't work. Won't idle, and stalls when warmed up and stopped for say a light. I'm not looking for massive power at the expense of fuel economy. I just want a smooth running dependable motor.

As requested photos of my carb

It has the word Motocraft on the top and what apears to be the remains of a sticker with the ford logo on it. It will start but the choke will not work and it wont idle . If I hold the butterfy closed it will stay running but revs very high and even after warming it up it stalls.

Rebuild it. Save the $200 or so differential versus replacement. Assuming you have a good mechanic. Mine wants $50 plus the cost of a kit, to rebuild my motorcraft 2150
