Sounds like the clutches in the transmission have welded themselves. I did this in a car I had once, when I put in in Neutral it would drive. Reverse the same.. everything you described. I lost Overdrive as well. One day I pad it in neutral and put the brake onand reved it. It went back to being normal for the day. then back to the same. Tran shop said I had broken the weld by stalling it up.

Just a thought, is it possible that the shifter or associated linkages have gone so far out of adjustment (loosened and slipped) that these selections have slid to forward drive gears? Might be worth checking out as a cheap option! Good luck!
