'58 caddy engine

I just bought a 1958 caddy, the last owner said that the car ran (before his son got a hold of it and started "working" on it), but smoked pretty bad. The engine is in pretty bad shape, very rusty and wont turn over. I cant find much info on rebuilding this engine, a friend said to put in a good, newer caddy engine, but this is the original engine. I think I would rather rebuild this one, where should I get info about rebuilding a caddy engine?
