When I'm driving my 65 I6 and I step on it, it seems like it has power then not then it does then it don't. only it does this really fast (off and on).

Gee, could be electrical....*G*

Driven through any water lately?

When was the last time you looked at the ignition system...?

How does the engine start when cold?

Does it do the same thing if you rev it up in neutral?

Get back to us with any recent changes to the engine and more info...

without more details, it could be any number of things...
carb float, accellerator pump, fuel pump or obstruction, ignition, etc...

This is where a tach comes in handy, even with a car equipped with an automatic. If the needle bounces to zero and then comes back, suspect ignition imediately. You can also tell if it runs steady at speed or varies slightly.

It starts good when cold. It does not do it in neutral only when driving it and steping on it
