My 1963 180C with three speed transmission is very hard to get rolling from a standstill. It requires lots of gas pedal and slow clutch engagement to move ahead in first gear. Shifting through second and third is fine - getting the vehicle moving from a stop that is hardest.
Any ideas or tips?

Do you mean it stalls out when taking off in first if you do opposite of above mentioned?

Yes, it will stall or almost stall unless lots of fuel is applied along with careful clutch work to get started from a stop.
