Your dizzy has no mechanical advance, and no normal spark advance. It has to work with a 'weirdo' 1V Autolite Load-O-Matic carb that adjusts spark advance using a special vacuum unit. They were not performance parts.
With a distributor that DOES have vac (and mechanical!) advance, your car will run a lot better. Your carb is a 2V, but with the adapter and intake you've got on your 200, I don't expect it would actually run any better than a standard 1V Autolite.
The Load-O-Matic system has to have both the special carb AND dizzy to work right. You can't mix and match. With no functional spark advance, that poor thing is going to run awful, and have no guts at all. An I6 Mustang is not going to roll your socks up and down when you step on the gas anyway, but when they work right, at least they are fun to drive.
