Look on craigslist for a older used running stock engine. The car looks worth saving and a SBC swap could be done in a day with a little effort and a skilled helper.

car has alot life left in it and i love it. if i am going to keep it its going flat black and i will do a ls7 or ls6 with a 460le. but i have a guy that already has all that and is a body man that has been bugging me about selling him the car. so im kinda up in the air about it. there is a really nice 75 nova roller down the street from me that i could pickup for cheap. so i dont know yet.
