'55 Clipper upshift problem
Not too shy to talk

My '55 Clipper Super runs well, but as I accelerate from a stoplight it "slips out of gear" at about 15mph (in effect, shifts to Neutral). Happens in either the first or second Drive position on its Twin Ultramatic.

If I let off the accelerator while rolling, in a few seconds it will grab again and shift normally.

Seems it might just be an adjustment, but all suggestions appreciated.

Sounds like a low fluid of plugged filter issue (presuming it has one). Once you've checked the previous possibilities, that might be next to look at.
