That's awesome. Welcome. I would suggest tacking the engine last, especially if you are also considering any kind of body work but getting it out of there and a good wash/clean up will tell you more. Engine last as it's undesirable to pour a bunch of moola into doing a nice engine then have it sit there in the corner for a couple of years or ten, corroding away while the other jobs get done. If you can, fix that engine, if you end up swapping in another engine, then at least save that block as you may want to make the car more correct in the future. Although Alfa's are not a "numbers matched" type of thing, there are definitely bodies and engines that are supposed to be together. Patina is not necessarily a bad thing, bunch of rust would be though. Should be a fun journey, lots of help here and even though you are in Canada, there is help around here too.
