I think any of the EA81 generation automatics should work fine. That would be 81-84 wagons, 81-86 Brat and hatches. Apart from maybe the turbo models, I think they all had the same gear ratios and would work out just fine. Just double check 2wd vs 4wd and that the gear ratios match from car to car.
Been a while since I've done a whole lot with these EA81s so someone less rusty than myself may offer more insight, but you should have plenty of options for a good trans.

How about a 3AT from an EA82 wagon? I would think it could be made to work. The 5 speed D/R or even S/R is well worth it too. There are issues specific to the auto ---> manual swap though, so do your research.
