    Sounds like you've lost the forward clutch. Not uncommon in the 3/4HP22xx series (505 3 speed - 505 4 speed - 405). Usually caused by lack of servicing, or as I saw one, dumping the car into gear from neutral at about 5000 RPM once too often
    Unfortunately a rebuild is going to cost a lot. Good replacement trannys for the 405 are hard to come across, and expensive.
    You need to ask yourself, how much is the car worth to you?

    You say the oil level is right, but how are you checking the level?

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    If there was a problem with the oil level, chances are you wouldn't have reverse either. If there's enough fluid to drive the torque converter, there's enough fluid to drive it into gear.

    But yes, you need to check the level with the engine running and the transmission warm.

    Again, if the filter is blocked, you won't have reverse gear either.
