1991 350sdl hill speed expectation

I have a 1991 350sdl with 160,000 miles on it. I drive LA to Bakersfield over I-5 which pulls some steep grades. What is reasonable to expect my diesel to do on a long steep grade as far as speed goes?

You should be able to maintain speed up most grades.

Assuming the car is in good running condition.
