a seized piston, assuming this means rings rusted to bore, is not necessarily going to require sleeving. More likely to require cylinder overbore. Put penetrating oil or ATF in the spark plug hole, wait, rock it in gear, repeat. Patience! This can take days, but can free the piston so you can disassemble the engine without further damage.

Kanter, Hirsch, Merritt are places to start for parts. Mechanical parts are relatively easy to find, although it's not a catalog car like Chevy or Ford.

I'd advise you to have an overall view on the project - be aware that this is a modest value car and you are likely to be financially upside down. Which is OK if you're enjoying the ride.
