Stumbles accelerating from a stop?

Im only asking here on the Jeep forum because I havent gotten a word of bad advice yet, and I cant trust a Camaro forum because their all murderers. A friend of mine just bought an 88' 2.8l V6 Camaro. 78,000 original miles. (200$) seems to work fine so far except when you start off from a dead stop. It stumbles and feels like its about to die and then, like flicking a switch, the power kicks on and it sails nice and smooth. I know this aint a jeep...but any ideas what this could be?

Timing vacuum advance. Pull the cap and check the counterweights for the advance see if they are moving together andnot binding. It may be flooding out at the first hit of throttle. Best I got.
