1973 450 SEL Soot on garage floor

Hey all~

Its been a while. I recently moved to a home that includes a garage. The potential of now permnantly housing this beauty in a garage is good.

However, I recently noticed a patch of soot starting to accumulate around where the exhaust points at the floor. I never noticed before because my previous home had gravel in driveway.

What are some potential causes for this? I am guessing that it may be running too rich; can this be the problem?

All opinions and expertise are welcome.

Sounds to me like an air-fuel mixture in the fuel injection system that is too rich.
