Default i just bought a 1993 lexus sc400..i need help?

so i bought an evergreen color sc400 it has a minor problem, i have a personal mechanic but theres realy no way to know the real problem unless we start replacing parts. so heres the story tell me what you think......

the previous owner said the transmission is blown .....
when the car is cold like hasn't gotten warmed up yet the cars runs beautifully but once is warms up it wont move...
when it dose move it shifts perfectly into each gear (it is auto) but once the temp reaches the middle of the guage it stops moving... we dont think its the tranny because of how smoothly it shifts when it dose move.... we think its the torque converter.... what do you think ...
it doesn't over heat never just doesn't move once its warmed up....
it makes noise when its running almost like there are things rattling around in the torque converter... but i just wanna see if any one else has had a similar problem befor i blow hundreds on all these parts??

please help , thanks
