IMHO - I am now rebuilding a 89 3.2 with low miles....mine were much worse than yours...I would say your motor is not in that bad of shape. I don't see the large black chunks I had. I had some valve guides that were very shot and I also had a ticking noise that went along with those. If you motor is hot and runs quiet and is not burning more than say 1qt every 800 miles then I would say your fine....unless of course you want to rebuild the top end for the fun of it. again this is IMHO.
