1948 Packard Eight engine seized

Just bought a 48 Packard that was stored inside for decades, and the engine is seized. My mechanic has started putting marvel mystery oil in cylinders. I've read a seized Packard eight is not unusual after long term storage. Ugh.

I just bought this from the Hempken Collection in Iowa where I gather it has been since 1966. It is on its way to Southern Pines NC. Looking for recommended sources for hoses, belts, tune up parts, gaskets, hydraulic parts, hubcaps etc. Thanks for any help in advance. rob@robrose.com if easier.

I just got this car and its going to a shop next week. It has been stored in a museum with fluids drained. I am sure it needs gaskets and hoses for the water system. I filled the radiator and see some seepage. I understand parts are hard to come by, but any leads are appreciated. Beyond that it could need a carb rebuild, tune up at least. Fan belt. The wiring looks good. Just trying to get a jump on what the shop may need.
