Sounds to me like reaction sunshell problem amongst other thing.

IF reverse works even a little , the Drive shell ( reaction shell to some folks) is OK.

THe trans has no 3rd or 4th gears? A common failure of the transmission since 1982 when the 700r4 was released.

Sounds like it needs a proper rebuild or at least serious internal repairs.
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
