a vehicle that's in some distress, specifically it needs a replacement auto box, any ideas anyone, other than that decent enough truck albeit glacially slow, perhaps a 606a candidate

Re: W460 Diesel auto

Re-conditioning costs are around £1300 mark. One suggestion is:

http://www.autogearbox.co.uk/,

I never dealt with them before but I am impressed with the quality of their website. (Some judging?)

There is the option of a second hand one but always questionable.
