1969 Buick Skylark won't go into reverse! Sign In

I recently bought an old 1969 Buick Skylark. When I test drove it everything shifted great. With my luck, the very next day I couldn't get it into reverse! It almost feels like there isn't a "notch" the shifter sits in. It settles down great in everything but reverse. Note: I love cars and everything about them but I'm just starting to dive into the "do it yourself" world. I'm NOT a gear head... Yet lol. I don't know all the terminology yet but I've got a buddy helping me so don't worry about getting technical with your answer! Any ideas as to what the issue is? Thanks in advance!
