WTB: 1968 230 transmission

I've been looking for either a rebuild kit or a parted out transmission for this car, but they're hard to find! If you have or know where to find one, please let me know. Thanks!

1986 560SEL (yes it has 19" rims, yes they're chick magnets, no I'm not a gangsta), 1990 300E w/ AMG motor (found brand new engine and transmission in abandoned warehouse!) and 1968 230 (old but dignified). Worked on 1982 280SL euro spec, 1982 380SL and 2007 E320.

Nope, just the straight 230. :-)

Well... maybe that's why I'm having problems. The papers and decal say it's just a 230 with no letters after that... Could I be missing a model designation? Here's a couple photos.
