Just last night my transmission gave out on me. Gear slippage is what I was told. The shop is saying anywhere around $1,600 to rebuild the tranny. Is that about an accurate price? Or would it be cheaper to buy a manufactured transmission? I don't have a budget because I just bought a 1970 Challenger R/T that i was going to restore and I don't want to have to sell it...
I appreciate any advice.

Can you install it yourself? If so that will save a bit of money.

If it were me I would get a low mileage tranny out of the salvage yard or craigslist and put it in yourself. I would have the converter cut and cleaned and then you should be good to go.

Should be less than half a rebuilt one I would say 4-700 depending if you can find a good deal. Taking them out isn't that bad either, if you can restore a car a transmission swap should be no problem.
