Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / Cable shift on column 65 Dodge Coronet

Here's a link to a video description of my shifter issue.  Hopefully this makes it clear.

So, just to get this right, if you shift into 2 (for drive), and then shift into reverse it works properly? But if you go to reverse (actually neutral), and then 2 (for drive), then shift into reverse it work correctly?




I hope I'm explaining this clearly.  Let me state it another way.  When starting in Park and then moving toward one of the selections to the right of Park such as R N D 2 1, the indicator needs to go one position past the gear I'm actually selecting.  Starting from Park to get into Reverse the the shifter needs to go one position past Reverse into Neutral for the transmission to go into reverse,  or to get into Drive it needs to go to 2nd.  When moving back the other direction however, say from Drive back to Neutral, or Neutral back to Reverse, it works correctly.
If more clarity is necessary I will shoot and upload a quick video to YouTube so you can see what's going on while I demonstrate and explain.
Thank you

As a slight diversion from this conversation I'd like to say, I've owned this car for a month and I am happy like a little kid every time I look at it.
How do I  post a photo?

Wow, your responses are very appreciated. Thanks for all your comments and help.  I need to re-read and process the info you had given me.  I'm going to see what the column shifter / indicator does going into 1st, and look over the cable at the steering column end and at the transmission. I will report back.
What is your advice on cleaning  / degreasing the area where the control cable adjusting wheel connects to the transmission?  Up under the car there are areas that are hard to reach and I am concerned about getting the surfaces as clean as possible before taking anything apart.
Thanks

This is my first post to the forum.  I am the happy new owner of a 1965 Dodge Coronet (base) 318 poly. Although it shows the signs of being 46 years old, it runs pretty good. 
It has a cable shift 727 automatic on the column.  
The shifter needs adjustment.  To shift I need to move the shifter indicator one position past the gear I'm selecting--that is, to select Reverse the shifter must be moved to indicate Neutral, to select Drive the indicator needs to go to 2nd, etc.
I may not tackle this repair myself but I am interested in learning.  I already have the 1965 Dart/ Coronet Manual but with my limited auto mechanic experience it's difficult to understand all of it.
Can you suggest any online articles or anything to help me educate myself?
Thank you
Robin Henkel
