700R4 question

I recently purchased the car in my signature, a 35 Ford with a 95 Chevy 350 tbI, and what I was told is a 700R4 tranny, with 373 rear gears. If you drive it like a normal person, it shifts solid and behaves just like my daily driver. However, whats the point of a street rod if you can't mash the gas and hear the rumble, when you do that the tranny just seems to wander, not really slipping, but, it doesn't feel like it knows where its going either. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, as I am a fairly good body man, but, have a lot to learn as a mechanic.

D-tent cable on the 700r4 trans needs to be properly adjusted to have them shift properly. You might want to start with that. Also what does the trans fluid look like and smell like?

transmission fluid looks and smells like new, and was supposed to have just been installed. I did some more reading last night and saw where the throttle valve cable is real sensitive, I'm going to check it out this weekend and hopefully that will be all it is. You know how it is when you buy something someone else has built, you are constantly finding surprises.
thanks for the reply
