If you start it, and drop it into 1 does it move? If so, sounds like the sprag clutch (iirc) has gone - this is the clutch that allows you to freewheel at lights and what not. Common problem on the Auto gearboxes. Will need a rebuild I'm afraid.

I have a 50s model jaguar wheels are seized up

its been stud for a long wile. you need to get the old oils out gear box engine oil /dif oil and put new oil in. then you need to take the wheels off and need to spray deep penetrating oil into the shafts. dif etc then this is going to be the worst part brake the brake pads of the front wheels clean the disc's and check piston for leaks as the rubber seal may have gone from rust. do same to drums on back. after all this is done it should be all right to move them but take it slow a few moves at a time. did all this to a jaguar sat for 30 years in a grass field underneath was nearly rotted through but was not my car and it is now all fixed and in car shows now. what ever you do don't try to run it with the engine, pull it with another car. can blow the gear box or engine or dif if you try to use the engine.only when it is free use the engine.

My Landrover Discovery 300tdi 1995, loses power drastically to almost stopping point. failing to climb steep hills and check engine comes on, only going off when I stop accelerating. This has been gradual...

replace ignition coil, spark plugs, also double chek your coolant temperature must be normal. overheating causes car slows down and engine cant handle excessive high temperature or may damage it.

before you cut or rewire the alarm, when welding the disco although disconecting the battery protects the battery, the imobiliser holds current, this my have gone into system factory setting, so it my be worth getting the imob and key re-conected, this is a cheap job at any Landrover specialist. hope your running smooth soon

Not moving in any gear

Have you checked the High-Low ratio lever.  Half-way between High and Low is a Neutral, so no drive to any axle even if a gear in the main box is selected.
Try locking the differential.  If this gives you drive, then it might be a final drive (half-shaft) failure.
