Default t5 stuck in 4th gear

i have a 84 thunderbird with a mildy built 302 (roughly 350horse) and its backed by a t5 5 speed. i was crusin down the road one day, 5th gear 60mph, when it popped out of gear. i put it back in 5th, let out on the clutch and nothing. (just like it was in neutral.) so i went down to forth and it was fine. tried to put it in 3rd, 2nd, 1st and the same thing (like its in neutral) theres no grinds, noises, nothing. any ideas?

So the only forward gear you have that still works is 4th ? All other forward gears are gone ?

I'm just clarifying for the smart guys here, they'll know more than me on what's wrong. But it doesn't sound good lol.

The clutch still seems fine yet ?
