WTB: 280zx close ratio 5-speed trany

I am looking for a "good" 280zx 5-speed, close ratio transmission for my '71 510 project.

By "good", I mean a drop-in transmission with no issues:
  • good syncros
  • good throw-out bearing/sleeve/front cover.
  • not leaking,
  • not corroded,
  • not cracked,
  • no broken ears.
  • no whining or growling
Please advise what you have or know. It may be a tall order as I would rather not have to do a rebuild. Maybe you know of a reputable shop that has said transmission(s)?

I have one from a parts car I just picked up, 79 280zx. I have not driven the car.

Car has 155k on it. $350 plus shipping.

Maybe I've been lucky, but all the parts cars and junkyard cars I've bought trannys from, I've never had any issues with them. Especially in the 70-83 years.

jsm, thanks for your reply.

I understand the close-ratio is only in the '80 to '83 model years. And your '79 may not be a close ratio.
