engine starts... then stalls

'64 Ford 2000 4 cylinder gas engine starts easily and runs for about 10-20 seconds then stops. It will start right up again and run for about 10-20 seconds and stop again. It will do that over and over again. It also stalls easily when the throttle is increased. It sounds like a fuel supply problem, maybe the carb. Is there a procedure for cleaning or rebuilding the carb or do you think its something else?

Take the tank off, put a few handfulls of small rocks (not dirt), nuts, bolts or whatever you ahve available, add about a quart of gas, and shake for a few minutes in each direction, or build a rig like this on much larger scale:
