Another 427 truck engine thread

Any help or suggestions would be very helpful. I have the chance to buy a 427 truck motor tall deck,its complete carb to pan(30k miles on it). A friend is selling it to me pretty cheap imo(500.00), but i have concerns cause i know there has to be alot of modifications done to perform the way it needs to in a pass car. I have a 64 chevy impala and would like a big block , but i don't have the money for extensive modifications.What are the cheapest options that can be done without going into the bottom end? I wanted to just drop it in for now but what kinda performance could i expect with a stock truck motor? Excuse my ignorance for the last question and my lack of knowledge.I cant break the bank on it but it was just something that came up and i would love a big block.I haven't purchased the motor yet, thats why I'm posting this thread. If anyone has any feedback ,thank you.
