Nice! Parts aren't hard to find. Our moderator, GermanStar, has been a great source of parts for me, as have Napa, Kraegan, Western Auto, etc. I've also had great luck with eBay and specialty sites.
A 6 cylinder isn't too awfully fast but definately a cruiser to turn heads with.
The headlights are becoming more and more rare, and expensive. In my opinion they look much better than the two stacked headlights.
Regarding a possibly siezed, not-run-in-20-yrs engine, you might luck out and get the thing to run after you put some work into it. The engine might not be siezed, and instead have a busted starter (somewhere in this forum ar enumerous threads on how to resurrect cars stored for long periods of time - handy stuff).
Note that there will be other issues to address besides a siezed engine. Rubber bits may have rotted away or become very brittle, the transmission might be toast after sitting so long, fuel and brake lines could use replacement, etc etc.
Before buying this thing, I'd take a find toothed comb to it and identify all your issues, and then offer less than what's being asked.
