Arrow !984 LTD Transmission

I have a 1984 Ford LTD 3.8 V6 with automatic overdrive trans. The problem is that it shifts from low to drive fine but at about 50 miles per hour it tries to go into overdrive but it acts like it half kicks out of gear if you let off the gas a little at about 45 it kicks back in. It will still pull itself when it tries to go to O.D. but it seams to be slipping but it pulls great in all other gears. If you have a cause for this problem any info would be greatly appreciated.

I left out that the car has 44,000.00 actual miles on it.

Check the throttle valve rod linkage.It connects to the carb and down to the transmission.It may have came loose.It is held on by plastic grommets on each end that breaks.
