Beadblasting followed by epoxy primer on the exterior before the rebuild works well, then before paint scuff the epoxy up with a scotchbrite.

when you take the heads in for rebuild they will put them in the oven. that takes off most of the rust. the heads are 70 model,so should be right for your car.
