What motor? What year of motor? Do you want OD or not? (I am probably going to say 700R4)

TH350's are cheap and well "vetted". You will need an adaptor kit. Sold online. Or a PowerGlide. Sometimes, I say, sometimes it is cheaper or same to buy a little newer donor motor with an auto, than to buy a kit. Same amount of work, sell the old motor and trans. We are talking about $400 plus ship for the kit, I think.
