I'm glad that you bought the car! The first thing I would do is get the engine to run and then replace the water pump. A running car is more fun to play with. If the cooling system holds pressure, you're home free. If not, and you discover that the block is cracked, just get another engine. A 289 should bolt right in if you can't find another 260. They're plentiful and relatively cheap. Good luck and keep us posted of your progress. It's a cool car! Larry W
