'72 300 sel 4.5

The transmission shifter for my 109 is on the floor and it becomes exceedingly hot - even to the touch. The transmission fluid is pink and pretty. No dash gauge indicates anything but normal. Perhaps it's normal, but it seems to emit a large amount of heat into the cab of the auto.

Is this immediate, or does the heat kick in only after a while? How close are your exhaust pipes to the undercarriage?
