I had been a 66 owner most of my TS life, until I picked up a General 350. Yours looks rough, but a lot of that is just elbow grease. You’ll be happy once it’s all done and running. Right now is the time to do ANYTHING you may want to do, before it’s in service. So if you like the looks, go for it, if not strip and paint from the ground up.

Can’t help with 3 phase. I always stayed away from them due to the need of something beyond a household connection to run them. I guess I’m a KISS kinda guy, especially when it comes to electric.

About the only real tip I will offer is after using DW40 and the like for a lot of years. I’ve found that while costing more that Kroil kicks buttocks when it comes to loosening stuck parts, and cleaning up gobs of rusty junk.
