If it were mine (and I can only wish here), I would keep this early engine and if desired find the correct carb and rocker covers (if they are different). Finding a numbers correct engine this late in the game may prove difficult. This will give you power until you can maybe find the correct casting/date codes to make it correct.
Maybe look in HEMMINGS to see if there is anything available. May have to but it piece by piece.
