87 Ford Escort running rough and rich

I got this little 87 Escort wagon from my brothers to use as a work car. When I'm sitting at a complete stop it runs really rough and you can smell the gas coming from the tailpipe. If I put the car in neutral it'll run smooth, but the smell is still there. Any suggestions? I've been told things such as 02 sensors and/or timing are the causes.
