1978 ford f150 tranny

with a 351 modified.

The tranny refuses to shift into first. Reverse works just fine, and the fluid is clean, and at the correct level. Filter is new. Is there a rebuild kit?

What should it cost to get this rebuilt at a shop? Is a rebuild necessary? I cannot find a replacement tranny in this area.

I will wait for the fury of wisdom!

Most likely that's a C6. [edit: er, um, maybe I jumped the gun - could be standard not auto - not clear from post]
