68 Toronado

Just purchased, but I think the motor is locked up. I had one of these years ago when I was in high school and I could turn the bottom pulley with a socket. The current pulley on the bottom does not have the same nut on it. How in the hell am I gonna break this sucker loose??? Help please,

You can try mixing ATF and a relatively light weight engine oil, then pour enough into each cylinder to mostly cover the piston. Let that sit for several days to a week. Leave the spark plugs out and use the longest breaker bar you can find on the crank bolt. Go clockwise.

If it doesn't break loose after a week or two trying this way, it's rebuild time for sure.
