confused First Rebuild

Hello guys-
Planning my first rebuild and any and all info you guys could give me would be a tremendous help. Bought a 1958 Tbird that's had a 460 put into it (at least I believe it's a 460 and not a 429, have not been able to check stroke length yet). Everything so far has matched with the previous owners description that the engine was taken from a 1973 Lincoln Continental. The head casting number is D3VE-A2A. It has an Edelbrock/Weber 1407 4 barrel carb, have not located the block cast number yet. I believe everything else to be stock. I plan to drive this car on street only, to car shows etc. but I am looking for advice to upgrade performance so it will have as much kick as a limited budget will allow. BTW no emmision reg. where I live. Thank you for any info you can give a novice like me, sorry for the length of post.

Desired hp? Must it run on pump gas? Budget?

The block casting number is located behind the starter and reads vertically. Bring a flashlight and look closely.
