Question 1980 300D Rear Screeching/Grinding

Hello Everyone,

I just got a 1980 300D which seems to have a strong engine, and clean interior. Only has 148k miles on the odometer. Have had it only about a week, and I noticed a grinding and screeching sound come from the right rear. I noticed it does not happen when in Neutral and coasting, only when in Drive and the lower gears. So I am assuming it is transmission related. The sound also has a regular cadence, like it is related to rotation.

Any ideas?
