If you really like the car and it's in otherwise good condition I'd suggest replacing the engine or, if you want to keep it all original, have the engine rebuilt. You're probably looking at between $1500 for a salvage yard engine and installation, up to about $4000 for a crate engine with installation. HTH. -Jim
