Post Unseizing!!

The 365 in my '57cady is seized and I was wondering what was the best way to go about getting it running again? I've heard that you drain the oil and pull the plugs and fill'er right up with something penetrating such as diesel, WD-40, or a even a coal oil/tranny fluid mixture and just let it sit. But what's the best way? The fastest? The cheapest? Anybody have any experience unseizing engines, what's worked for you? Is it necessary to pull the engine?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
