IS IT MY TRANSMISSION OR SOMETHING ELSE?

1978 Ford F-150

I have a 1978 ford f150 ranger slt (automatic) that wont go over 5 mph, was wondering if it is a transmission issue or something else. I was driving to work one day and it was working fine, parked and went to go home and it went into reverse fine and when I went to put it in drive and accelerate it would only go 5 mph. What is wrong with my truck, because it has a brand new engine, and im stumped.

It sounds like the trans is slipping. Most likely has a c6 trans and it sounds like the front clutch worn out

Ok so figuring out little by little that the truck is frankensteined. It has a 1989 AT f150 c6 4s transmission with OD.

Overdrive? Did you have another trans installed? 78 only had a 3 speed c6 that I was aware of.
