351W Build

Hello, I am looking to replace the 302 in my 1969 Ford Ranger with a 351W. I am a beginner when it comes to cars and mechanics. My dad and I used this truck as a work truck for 15 years and he recently gave it to me. I would like to fix it up, make it look nice, and take him for a ride in it some day. This will begin with putting a new motor in it. Is it better to buy a block from somewhere like Jegs or to pick one from a junk yard and have it machined? Looks like Jegs sells a short block for about 1400 and the Edlebrock performance kit for about another 1700. Is this a good way to go or are there better ways to go about it? again I know little to nothing at this point. I am hoping to learn as I go.
