confused 1960 edsel with 472 bigblock,tunnel ram 2 450 holley carbs and misfire problem

im having problem with misfire and backfire.
the car is a 1960 edsel, the motor is a 1974 lincoln 460
bored to a 472 bigblock with tunnel ram
and 2 450 holley carbs and gear drive.
some one help me figure out why it misfires at idle
and backfires when reved up.

Sounds like you have a crossed plug lead, or cracked distributor cap.
