WTB 722.355 out of 89-91 420SEL ONLY

I realize many 722.3XXs will "FIT". I don't want one that just "FITS". I only want the correct 722.355 trans out of an 89-91 420 SEL. Why? Because everything I've read says that although others will "fit", being even one number off is just asking for shifting problems with the electronics and I'd like to avoid that.

Seems that every search I do anywhere on the net is an automated seller that tells me the trans for sale will "fit" my car but their is no real human being that can/will just go look at the actual trans for sale and visually verify the number stamped on the passenger side of it, just behind the exhaust.

I'm primarily after a good working used trans. Moderate to high mileage OK if it has a reasonable price. Somewhere in the $500-$700 including shipping ballpark range. Not interested in a grossly overpriced trans where I could just go buy a running driving 420SEL off craigslist for less. That being said, I'm not opposed to pulling a little more with it and just buying a whole parts car. I'm not opposed to driving a reasonable distance to find one. I'm not opposed to pulling the trans myself so that you don't have to.

Sorry if I sound frustrated but I've had cash in hand for a while now and I am frustrated. This just shouldn't be this difficult and yet it is.

I'm located in Johnson City TN 37604 USA.

Lucked up and found one newly listed on ebaY for $620 total with shipping, that a real person looked at the number.
