free 302

So my step brother is offering me a free 302 out of a 89 towncar. Has 180k on it, but runs fine. I was planning on a 302 out of an explorer because of the injection and heads. Where I live that would run me about 1000 for one with 100k on it. Is it worth getting this motor for free? I have never converted a carbed motor to injected, and am not sure it would be worth it in the long run. I also do not know what heads these have.

Complete rebuild axle/engine/everything swap in progress:
Parts already gathered for assembly: 2001 Ford 302, 1990 Mustang GT 5.0 ECU and wiring, NP435, NP205, Pair of axles from 04' F350 SuperDuty (Sterling 10.5 Posi rear, Dana 60HP Front-Both Disk Brakes 3.73 Gears), 37" H1 Tires, 9" lift TJ Coils for 2 link conversion in front, Stage 2 Clutch Kit, 3 Row Aluminum Radiator, Chevy Astro Steering box (4" front Stretch), XJ Rear Leaf Springs (6" Rear Stretch), and lots more.

There are more and more efi kits out there to make that easy. FAST, Holley, Edlebrock, to name a few.
