I think it needs to come out and be taken apart, but I'm an optimist. No telling what caused it and better to find it, than chance messing it up. You don't want to start it if you get it unstuck with MMO.
I see many get in a hurry to start their "find" only to later have major issues. First they ask about a tick or noise or no oil pressure, etc.
My '49 (288) sat outside for years and I could turn it by hand before I bought it.
Conv. car's got good value, so best to have a sound motor in it, but assuming, we didn't see the rest of it.
