If it's a 466, it'd be hard to go wrong unless the rest of the truck is junk.
Even if the engine in it is toast, a running pull out 466 can be had for $1000-$1500 or so for the old mechanical style. Parts still available and cheap.
The other thing, how long has it been sitting, a 'few years' can mean 2 to some people, 5 to others.
Had a combine that sat for 4 years with an IH 400 series engine in it, barred it over, it was free, radiator was pretty much full, and got it started and running in about 15 minutes. That engine is still running today in a tractor. Combine was worth maybe $1200 and a used engine was $1300. Pulled the engine, and sold the rest of the combine for about $750 to a scrapper.
