Buick Has No Power

My 1976 Buick Skylark, auto transmission, 6 cyl, idles fine but has no power on start off and the power increases when I finally get past 20mph. Engine sounds like it is bogged down.

Engine size? Straight six 250 Chevy? Buick 231 V6?

The latter is a dog and not worth a wooden nickel. Never was a powerhouse and a horrible engine .

Condition of the engine? Last time it was tuned up? Mileage? Timing on the money? Timing chain ever been done? Last time the carburetor was serviced? Exhaust leaks? Restrictions? Noises? Leaks?

etc, etc, etc. Could be just about anything..need more information and background on it. See the top of the forum for posting guidelines.
