If it's an automatic I would say it's your clutch packs.

Sounds like a modulator valve to me. Will it shift if you let up off the gas pedal and then step down on it as though using a clutch?

The first thing to check is the kick down rod from the carburetor to the transmission. The upper end clips onto a stud on the throttle linkage, and the nylon can get brittle and break. Make sure it is firmly connected there. Check the lower end where it snaps on to the linkage on the transmission. It can fall off if you catch it on anything. Once you know it is firmly attached at both ends, make sure it is adjusted correctly. The adjustment is done at the carburetor, and should have the kick down fully engaged at wide open throttle.
