If the truck is is fairly good condition, I would restore it.

If it is not salvageable, then go for the swap.

It's in pretty good shape, so I'll probably leave them alone.

Ditto!
I would restore it and save it. They will only go up in value I'd bet.
You can pick up a 351W from a salvage yard or less valuable vehicle.
The 351W is a much stronger base than the 5.0 and there is no substitue for cubic inches like they always say.
