engine smokes
 
355 sbc smokes in town but not at highway speeds

Likely at highway speeds you simply can`t see it. This could be valve seals, valve guides or a leak at the intake gaskets. Worse case scenario would be rings.

Overheated engine is never good sign.Look at your spark plugs.Also take a compression test.On the other hand,"A engine that smokes is well lubricated!" ;)

Ayuh,... Do a compression test, 'n leak-down test...

Sounds like she's pretty Beat though...

disassembled engine. did a leak down test, not good. afterwards found that the valves looked like they tried to go through the heads, can these be repaired

A machine shop can install new seats in the heads...
