Sounds good overall. If I were you, I would price the car as an 82 SC needing an engine rebuild:

Who knows what the PO did to the engine. The leak may only be one of many mistakes he made? If he did not seal or torque things right, that's not acceptable. If there is head studs snapped, it likely means he didn't replace the dilvar studs, which means he did things quickly or on the cheap. I guess you get the idea.

A full engine rebuild (did his rebuild have new pistons and cylinders?) can run you 5k in DIY mode. If an SC is worth 11k in your area, you may only break even. But of course, you'd have a fresh engine that you'd know will last...

Cheers, George
