Can anyone recommend a place to buy a rebuilt transmission for a 69 280se. I have come across Sun valley mercedes dismantlers but sourcing a transmission from a junk yard scares me.
Are you saying that you don't have a core and that you need one? Give them a call (Sun Valley Mercedes Dismantlers). I just got my car back from them with a rebuilt transmission and I'm confident that they did a good job. Also, $250 (I think) for removal/installation was in my opinion a total bargain. Are you local to S.California? I did a fair amount of research before I sent the job to them. Generally they are well-reviewed.
