My advice, if its because of the heads you can pick up a spare motor from a local scrap yard and freshen it up a bit before swapping heads or motors

If you do a web search you will find many places that can make you a custom head gasket at a reasonable price.

What happened to the car?

That's a junk yard head I bought a set because mine got well let's just say the valve springs turned blue from heat
So one head from the j/k yard fine (within specs) the rear head has already been shaved 0.008 ......po

And the j/k is fresh out of heads
