Default Newby Here! Heater Core question

Hey, guys I am new here. I have been asked to sell a 60 Bird for some friends. Been sitting in storage for a long time. I want to make sure it as saleable as possible, and the heater hoses have been cut from the heater core and re-routed to the engine. My question is, how hard is it to change the heater core? Does it come out through the interior side or the motor side, and, are there some good instructions somewhere that I can get to follow?
I am trying to decide the best way to sell this car for these folks.
It is a good running and pretty old car. Just a few bugs to work out.
I would appreciate any assistance.
Thanks!

The removal of the heater core is not that difficult. It is removed from the inside of the car. You will need to remove the glovebox to get to it.

I will try to post some detailed instructions by Monday.
