You can still do this engine right and relatively cheap. A new set of pistons and rings and a gasket set. If the bores are good, just cut the ridge and do a nice hone job. If it needs a re-bore, many shops do a V-8 for around $100.00. If the rod bearings look as good as the main bearings, they can be reused also. Make sure you put everything back in the same positions that they came out of. What do the heads look like. Locally, I can get set of heads and valves ground for about $100.oo also. So for around $500.oo or less you can overhaul this engine to run strong for many years.
