Usually it is the shift lever seals leaking ...

It is a very simple job to remove the seal and replace. There is a tool designed just for that purpose.

It is KD 2393 and costs about 10/12 dollars at most any decent REAL parts store. I am guessing on the price. I paid 3 or 4 dollars for mine in the early 70's.

This is more of a transmission question ... so as a MODERATOR ... I am going to move this thread to the transmission area where the MODERATOR there ( Crosley ) can possibly be of more assistance.

When the Engine's running the fluid level is even with the Pan mounting surface. When the the vehicle sets the Torque Converter will drain back into the Pan and the fluid level rises to where the Dipstick, Detent Cable & Shift Shaft/Lever seals can leak, also the Speedo Cable, Governor and Front & Rear seals. The seals get hard/brittle over time.
There're 2 types of Dipstick & Detent seals, O-ring or Boot style, looks like an upside down Top Hat.
