What motor do you have? Are you sure its a 3 speed and not an aod (4 speed)? The 3 speed didnt have overdrive. Thats a common problem with an aod and a missing tv cable bushing. Is it efi or carb’d? Take pics of the throttle body/carb area and look for any unhooked linkages or rods.

That shift pattern is for an aod. Theres only three things that cause that: the tv cable isnt attached, a shift valve is stuck or the governor is stuck/broken.

He shows the procedure for an f150, make sure that cable is actually attached to the throttle body.
