If you're gonna stick with the 3.08 gears, then get the tightest stall 9.5" converter possible, which will be in the 2600-2800 range. That will also cover you for a mild heads/cam upgrade in the future as well as a gearing change.
If you already have bigger plans for the car, let us know, and the recommendation will change.

gears may come later.and as far as the motor goes i may do some port work on a set of al vette heads and run a hotcam and lt4 intake and some good headers.thats about it.

the car already had a cai,underdrive crank pulley,new exhaust with h-pipe from the stock headers back.

im still a bit confused on the stall though.

lockup or non lockup?(i dont know the difference)

when running a 2800 stall will my tranny slip until 2800 while daily driving around town?how does it work??
