1968 Transmission Problem

Hey everyone have a question regarding my 68 Mustang. When shifting into reverse my pony shifts hard going into that gear and makes like a clunking sound as well. It does it when the engine is cold and hot. Any ideas what may be causing this and what possible fixes I can try? The transmission fluid is within normal limits and have not noticed any transmission leaks. The engine is a 302 V8 with a 3 speed auto transmission. Thanks for any help you all can provide.

Check the motor mounts & transmission mount.

With the Transmission in Park, (do not set the Emergency Brake), Engine OFF and wheels chocked, climb under the car and turn the driveshaft back and forth; this may help narrow down the location of the noise.

As already mentioned the U-Joints could be at fault, Mounting areas need to be checked for damage or loose bolts and you may need to inspect the input shaft and yoke for damaged or worn teeth and it could be inside the differential.
