BW35 won't shift into 3rd 1800 1973

I was running some errands with my '73 1800ES, and after driving most of the day on the highway and around town, my BW35 doesn't shift into 3rd. It'll go through first and second, but then I don't feel the usual shift into 3rd at around 37mph.

I first noticed it on the highway, it had been running fine, but I had to accelerate uphill onto the highway pretty quickly, so I'm wondering if this could be the cause. Maybe the kickdown cable? The car has 77K on it, and both the oil and transmission fluid seem normal. Could something be out of adjustment, or is this another reason to do an AW70 swap?
