Loss of Power

New to posting on here. I have encountered a problem and haven't been able to diagnose the problem or successfully find a thread that addresses what I am experiencing.

I have a 74 911T with a rebuilt 2.7L that was converted to carbs mated to a rebuilt 915. I was on the highway cruising at about 65mph when I noticed that I was having to apply more and more throttle to keep the car at the same speed until my foot was eventually planted to the floor. No noticeable change occurred with the sound of the engine.

I pulled to the side, shut the car off immediately to try and figure out what had happened. Since I was in a bad place on an off-ramp I decided to restart the car and get off at the next exit. Car started, seemed to run okay except that the power felt weak, for lack of a better word. Any thoughts on what I would check first?
