300SDL Transmission problem

I have a 1987 300sdl with 265K miles. When it shifts up at about 15-20 mph it revs at 3-4000 then settles but when it shifts at about 35-40 mph it slips more and can rev over 5000 before it upshifts and the revs go down to about 2000-2500. Its fine after the second shift.

Does anybody have an idea on the best course of action?

Thank you
