280 auto trans shifter plus misc problems

I test drove a 1975 280 W114 a couple of days ago. The car would not drive in 'D' it was as if the car was in neutral. It would drive in '2'. Is this likely to be a serious problem or just an adjustment? Also the 'Catalyst' light on the dash was on and the turn signals would not operate - the dash light just flickered rapidly and the lever would not click either way. Is anyone knowledgeable about these cars? How easy is it to repair small holes and tears in the seat covers?
