Cold Start stuttering acceleration....1976 280s

Hello World,
Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on why my 280 stutters as if it's not getting proper flow of fuel. This generally happens in the mornings when the car has not run for a while..

Once I have driven for about 2 miles or 5 minutes, the acceleration is back to normal and the car no longers spurts and stutters on the take off..It's as if itr warms up enough or builds up compression then runs great...

any suggestion are as always, GREATLY APPRECIATED...
