Default transmission question

I am considering adding a second dodge truck to my lil stable. I already have a 2001 dodge quad cab 1500 4x4 that is great.

I am looking at a 1984 w150 (think that is the designation for a 1/2 ton 4x4 of that year) which has a 4 inch suspension lift, 2 inch body lift, 360, 35 inch tires, utility bed and 3.73 gearing on a auto tranny.

Question is, the transmission will not fully lock in park...all others (reverse, neutral, drive gears) work fine. Before I commit to this truck, I would like to know possible causes and fixes for this issue. It is the only issue on the truck. I want this vehicle for offroad exploration and camping.

Any ideas??

If it's a linkage problem, it's not a big deal. If it's in the park pawl, the trans pan will have to be pulled and the parts inspected first. I won't try to guess at the cost because labor rates vary so much from place to place.
