There are tons of cheap 4 speed automatics out there. Why would you want to settle for a 3 speed?? The lock up 350 was a last ditch effort to meet increasing cafe standards in the late '70s. There is a good reason you haven't seen one in a new car for decades. Besides, "looks like new" is not worth $150. These trannies are not worth that much. A couple cans of solvent and and some spray paint can be had for under $10. Buy a dirty post 1985 700r4 and make it "like new" yourself. You'll be happier.
