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.
1989 3.2 coupe, DIY top end at 77k, now 112k
