1979 Monte Carlo questions

My son has a 1979 Monte Carlo. It has a 200 V6. 60 degree, distributor in front. Not sure of the trans. The car is a few hundred miles away.

Its pretty tired, over 190,000 miles on it. Its time for a new motor and trans, the motor has hardly any oil pressure at idle (light flickering) and the front trans seal is shot.

I was wondering who had the best Reman engines, planning to stay with the 200 for better milage. ART has a pretty good price on a long block. Planning to go with a aftermarket manifold, headers etc. Also wondering if anyone knows what the standard trans in it would be, markings, pan shape etc, to have my kid look at it and tell me over the phone.

I have read they came with TH200, TH200C and 200R4, I assume the 305 Montes would have a TH350.

Will a TH350 attach to a 200 V6? Thanks guys
