I would go with a good used engine, just by looking at the heater supply tube I would say that the block is most likely full of corrosion better check the radiator it might be totally plugged, this really looks like a project.

Well one things for sure the torque converter has been replaced. Do you know anything about the tranny?

The owner told me it was rebuilt but shortly after the motor locked up and sat since 2013 I suppose I should've gotten some more info
