What size motor? Maybe a mustang auto trans might fit. Should be tons of those things floating around since most mustang owners want a 5 speed manual. Try your local craigslist auto parts section.

Your original transmission should be the AOD transmission, Michael is right, you can probably find one for a decent price.
