To make your life and the mechanic's life easy and to avoid any issues with I would just put the same motor and tranny in..

Joemom is absolutely correct, and why not just rebuild your own systems. BUT, since both have failed at the same time, I would probably get rid of this car.

Besides, 1989 is getting really old, you definitely don't have modern safety equipment on your car. It will cost too much to add this on later. Did you know that the larger majority of traffic fatalities occur on older cars that don't have front and side air bags, vehicle stability control, etc,?

it will have to be the original equipment- admirable that you like your old corolla- but we all seem to agree here- weird

Ditto. Don't mess around trying to find another engine. Rebuild the one you have and that will cost about the same or maybe even less But (sigh) it's a 4A FE 1.6L - 1987 -1991
