Stuck in 4th?

I just got this mustang a few weeks ago from a friend. She was driving down the interstate and it popped into 4th gear. She tried getting it out but it wouldn't budge at all. It had been parked for a month when we got everything figured out. Well it seems that it won't come out of gear when the car is running or when it is off. Although before we towed it to the house when it was shifted to where reverse should be the reverse lights did come on. It will not stay running without the clutch pushed in. I am not sure where to start on this really. My husband got the drive shaft off so far and is thinking a tear down is in need with the tranny. Any idea as to what might be wrong with it? I'd rather not start a huge project if it might be something that is an easy fix lol

That tranny is shot. You are going to either have to rebuild the one you got or buy another one. Sounds like a good excuse to put a stout replacement tranny in.
