If it's a '54 engine I was told the same thing. If it's '55 or newer parts are not too hard to get.
A machine shop in your area familiar with Y-blocks may be hard to find. Sit down first if you ask them for a rebuild price estimate.

Find the '6015' engine block casting number and look it up on this chart, there are photos of where to find it...

If the truck has a manual transmission I'll guess the V8 vs. straight 6 clutch linkage is different too.
