I had kinda had the same problem only mine was about 45 to 50 mph and when you got on it to pass it would stall out and loose power and either restarted on its own or I had to put it in neutral and then restart it. I found that there is a heat shroud plate attached to the starter and it was shorting out the electrical system. I took it off and now it runs perfect.

1989 chevy hesitates when giving it alittle gas and almost dies but dosent

It appears that you have what is known as a flat spot in the carby ( I assume you have one). It occurs as the butterfly is opened and there is a transition period from idle to increased rpm's in the jets . To over come this there is an accelerator pump that provides a squirt of fuel to provide the correct air/fuel ratio until the main jets cut in. If you have a Holley it is in the form of a diaphragm inside a nut in the immulsion block. IN other carbies it is a plunger . If you have EFI then have the codes read to find which sensor is failing

Engine has hesitation/miss without a check engine light coming on upon acceleration

there are many things that could cause that from bad gas to weak fuel pump or dirty inline filter or timing chain could be weak or dirty intake or bad catalitic converter or no converter or even a vaccum line off or cracked or even a bad EGR valve so you see theres alot of things that cause poor exceleration or idle. Hope this was some what helpfull.
