Check your fuel pump/fuel filter. On the newer fuel injected cars/trucks a restricted fuel filter will allow the engine to perform properly until a fuel demand limitation is reached. Operation may be normal at 60mph and then feel like it has hit a wall at 65mph when the fuel delivery is not sufficient for engine operation at the increased load. Acceleration is the same condicition low fuel flow due to the blocked filter not allowing full fuel flow to the engine.

Why would a 1975 Chevy 350 idle fine for a few minutes but when taken driving runs fine when accelerating but sounds like it is trying to die when the at low RPM's?

Sounds like you have a fuel related problem. Most likely too high of a mixture of gas compared to air. When you are accelerating the extra gas is needed to speed up but when you slow down to lower rpm`s the extra is choking out the carb. Check your tailpipe and see if there is a strong smell of gas and if it is sooty. If it is too rich your mixture will need to be set on your carb.
