Every seal, gasket, and drop of RTV would be hardend and flaked away.
The Lifters would be compleatly dry. The cylinders with open intake valves would have a few things in them, I would think, After 50 years of not moving at all, she was a goner at best.
Gorgeous car though, Grand Fury/Belvedere are my most favorite Mopar cars of the the late 1950'* for sure, would Kill to own one.

Unfortunately for Tulsa, cement is still normally porus to some extent.
