300SD 1985 Auto trans dropped forward - reverse OK

My brother is currently awaiting a tow truck on Plumb Lane in Reno, NV. Out of the blue, while he was driving normally, he suddenly lost all forward movement in the automatic transmission. Reverse is OK. We have no clue as to what might have happened. There were no discernible noises. All appears Ok under the hood. Does anyone have a clue what might have happened? Anything relatively simple? Like not having to pull the trans. Help!

Does not sound promising. If you haven't picked a shop yet, A&F Transmission on 4th St. is supposed to be good. They are in the process of doing some work for me but they aren't done yet, so I don't know for sure.
Anyone who thinks a 300D is fast drives too slow.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 357,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 24,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
