New to the sight

Just picked up a 66 LeMans convertible. I am looking to have the engine rebuilt this fall. The previous owner said the engine hasn't been touched. Runs good starts right up. I am trying to find someone in the Providence RI area who does good work. Appreciate any help.

A good scrubbing, some new gasket here and there, some paint, and your golden if the car runs well. If it is power your after I understand. Other wise clean, mend, and move on to other parts of the car. X3 on the car porn.

I was thinking after 45 years it would make sense to open it up take a look around clean it up and replace what's worn out, have the engine and the engine compartment painted. Also what about the issues using unleaded and the affect on the heads? So much to think about.
