Going the rebuilt way is a great solution. Not many of the OHC 6's are still around since everybody's first mod is an engine swap to something more powerful. You may want to shop junk yards and, if you do, remember that the engine was used in many 60's GM cars so look for Chevelles, Chevy II's, Buick Specials, Olds F-85 and Cutlass's, as well as Firebirds and Pontiac Tempest and Lemans cars.
