Sounds like your tranny is DONE.

Maybe the transmission is in two gears at once...

No TransBrake I assume?

Update: So, I drained the transmission fluid and removed the oil pan and what I found at the bottom of the pan looked like The Blob! Also the filter was totally clogged with the stuff. I replaced the filter and tomorrow will add fresh fluid and hope for the best.

If it functions enough to drive and you're not the type to pull and/or rebuild this yourself, then I'd drive to the local transmission shop of choice to have it fixed properly.

If you've only burnt up clutches, then the rebuild won't (shouldn't) be very expensive. Hoping this thing will function with an oil and filter change only is extremely wishful thinking (not to be the bearer of bad news).

Drained the ATF and replaced the filter and cleaned the oil pan and it's running good as new. Filter was totally clogged with sludge. Now my only problem is major leak from the pan gasket. Sucks having to take drain it again and try to seal it so it stops leaking.

Don't waste your time. Pull it out and rebuild it . Sounds like your pump is toast. Should have pulled it out the first time you felt it slip. You cannot fix slipping with any oil additive or by changing the filter. I hate that lucas snake oil, (homer simpson's voice) "suckerrrrrrr". Is it making any weird noises? One thing that can cause slipping is if the filter clogs/caves in on itself, then you will hear the pump sucking up air, that will cause slipping but swapping out the filter will fix that. Cheap filters will do that. Do you have a trans cooler? If you don't you really need it behind that 383. They get reall hot. Put the trans in neutral and rev up your engine. If it revvs up fine your motor is fine and you have a transmission issue. Last year I picked up a third-gen with a shot trans and It had the same symptoms. When trying to reverse, it would move few feet then would bind up and not move and the rpms would not go past a certain point like you describe almost like hitting a rev-limiter. When in drive I could revv it as high as I wanted and would creep forward few inches. Rebuild time.

Have you thought about where all that "sludge" came from? Hint: If it's in the pan, it's no longer on the clutches...
