Personally, I would buy new. You never know what kinda life that stall has had prior to selling.

Buy new. You may get a converter with junk in it and month down the road u will need a trans due to contamination or if it is serviceable u could call a trans shop for a checkover or rebuild not sure what kinda of cost
