450 SEL Transmission

I have a 1975 450 SEL, very low mileage. Audometer says less than 50,000. Everything original, everything works. Only trouble I've been experiencing is a loss of power that often occurs when the upper gears are engaging (or not). has anyone else experienced this. I was wondering if it is a common problem with these old cars, even low mileage cars like mine. When I first got the car the accelerator linkage was sticking, and a good cleaning fixed that. Hopefully this is a simple problem too.
