Need more info. Do you have this vibration at 1500 in park? If the vibration is only when you are moving it may be in transmission or drivetrain. Bring the car up to 25 mph in a safe place and turn the motor off and see if you have any vibrations. What work did you recently have done to car ?

4 speed car. Vacuum check reads 16-17 no popping through exhaust or carb. Just body work.

I might have found the problem. When I rebuilt the distributor instructions said to saturate and repack the oil well with an absorbent material.when I removed the cap there was oil all over the points and half way up the cap possible shorting the points out.
