Sounds like it needs some T.L.C. and bonding time with tools and parts... 

 

These cars are easy to work on (kind of) and very forgiving.... fix it?

Oh yeah, very savable.

 

This "foamy" stuff, is it like puke yellow? If you open the oil filler, is it under the cap as well? Are you losing coolant?

 

Shutting off at a stop could be a load/idle problem. I assume it's carb'd? Do you see any evidence of leaks (i.e. wet gaskets or wetness) around the intake or carb base?
