Stuck in gear
First, with the clutch in it should roll normally. If so that eliminates the possibility of the disk stuck on the flywheel which has nothing to do with a gear problem, but you can move the car with the clutch disengaged.
I suspect two things, with welders working in the car there is more than some likelihood of the shifter getting hit.
If you can move all 3 rods into all 6 gear positions and nothing changes re the "Lock" then likely you have a gear/bushing seized on the shaft.
If the balls & egg shaped shift rod locks were installed correctly technically it shouldn`t be in 2 gears at the same time. However remove the covers and shifter mechanism from the tower (all of it) and look at the position of the 3 shift rods. If you find that 2 are out of position when you first look, that means the locks are not in correctly. Move all 3 to the neutral position with a pry tool of some sort. That should free the transmission. If it doesn`t that means a shift fork is loose, and the slider still engaged, or if you messed with the bushings one has seized to the shaft. Either case you will have to re-open the box..
