    When you're driving the car, do you intend to drive it hard and ring it's neck?. If so, it does just sound like the missing piece of the puzzle is the converter - you already know that anyway. I don't think you need to go anywhere yet for tuning as the most important part of the whole engine and trans is not complimenting the car at all.
    Any tuning effort when the converter is sucking a considerable load at low rpm will make it hard to tune. Anything to make it driveable will be a compromise as a result of this mis-match. I'd be looking in to a suitable converter before you go to get it setup.

    If you floor it at say 10mph, what rpm does it immediately pick up to or does it just feel unresponsive?

    I'd want to see 6,500 rpm and it should pull hard right up to that point if the other parts on the engine matches. Helps too if the car is light.

    There might be other aspects like her carb to deal with too if it behaves like that.

    I ain't far from you, happy to help
