I had this same problem with my hot rod and it turned out that the master cylinder plunger was not coming back all the way when you let off on the brake pedal. As I drove the car each time you depressed the brake pedal you would build up a little pressure until the brakes would grab like you described. Try to see if you can adjust the pedal so that there is just a little play (about 1/8 inch) between the time you push the brake pedal and the rod starts moving in the master cylinder. Hard to explain, but I hope you can see what I mean.
