Auto transmissions from this period do not have electronic control, and therefore should be more adaptable to the 6.9.
I know of another alternative currently installed in an American muscle car:
-three speed auto with manually operated lockup on all three ratios.
The TurboHydro 400 (T400) by GM and the Torqueflite 727 (T727) by Chrysler are bullet proof boxes.
However, they are only 3 speed...
