308 Engine Block Possibly Needed for 53 Hornet

Hi Hudsonites:
My engine block for my 53 Hudson Hornet is in the machine shop & they have found some serious hairline heat cracks coming from the valves to the cylinder wall. As a mininum, the block will need sleeved. May need to locate a replacement block if this one can't be repaired & the cracks are too deep down the wall.  Right now looking for what might be available out there in Hudsonland, preferably within a reasonable driving distance from southcentral Pennsylvania.  If you all could post what you know of or have available & what is not junk, please do so. I would like to drive to pick one up but if I have to, I can have it shipped, even though that is the least financial option right now. My current block is dated September 1952. Thanks.
