Default Tranny Compatability

Ok I took out the reverse on my automatic 88 hatchback 4 banger a few weeks ago when I rearended someone. I am now looking for a replacement tranny. I know somebody that has 2 auto trannys for real cheap. I just wanna know if they will be a direct swap for my car. This is what he told me, "I have an 82 auto bolted to a straight 6 and an 80 thats bolted to a 255". Think either will work for me? I would like to know for sure so that i don't end up buying a tranny that won't work.

Thanks in advance


-Cory

the one from the 255 might work, its just a de-stroked 289, but the straight six has a different bellhousing bolt pattern.

Niether will work if you have a 2.3l 4 cylinder. The bolt pattern is different.
