700R4 stuck in First gear

The 700R4 is in a 84 vette and I not sure if there has been anything added to it.
The trans first started with a once in a while slip shifting to high gear under hard acceleration. This last time after lettting up and allowing it to shift it drove 60 -70 mph until I got off the interstate. Then once at the stop sign, it will go to the 1st gear shift point and not shift. If you let off you need to allow it to drop rpm and stop slipping to get first gear back.
The trans fluid smells bad and is not the normal red/purple color. Manual indicates the governor. Suggusetions....
