Finally brought it home. Internals are rusted solid. Have a new 302 I am building up to put in for now.

New parts (gaskets, seals, bearings, headlights, wipers, carb, misc bolts and such):


Slowly she'll get built up. Right now the 302 is going to be stock with E7 heads, aluminum intake and headers. I need to finish pulling the other head, douse it in penetrant, and see if it will rotate so I can unbolt the torque converter. If I can't, I may have to pull the converter with the engine..
