78 Waggie: What is causing this misfire?

So I'm looking at buying a 600 dollar Wagoneer with quite a bit of body damage, and a misfiring engine. It misses on one or two cylinders according to the ad, but it starts right up. The engine dies however when you start to drive it. The owner says his next repair was replacing the cylinder heads, but I'm not sure if that's what's actually the problem. What else could be the cause? I don't want to buy this thing if I'm not gonna be able to get it driving.

Recent repairs:
Rebuilt carb
Fuel pump
Fuel filter
