Why do you want a manual valve body ? I think from memory the corvette t700 box had stronger parts inside. VN -VP  commodore box is used to retro fit earlier models with t700. Any good auto trans shop should be able to point you in the right direction

From memory you have to use the kick down cable & has to be adjusted correctly if you run a Holley carby there is an adaptor for cable connection  to carby. TCI transmissions should be able to answer the question if they supplied the valve body
