'63 Ford Ranchero Help

Im looking at buying one... its got 89k miles, inline6 3ontree, and completely restored... I am looking into trying to get more power out of this thing, without having to get a new motor... any advice? (im 16 years old, and this is going to be my first car, $3500 took a long time to save up)

Here's Some Pictures...

People do not sell GOOD cars, they only sell BAD cars.

The manual shifting linkage on the column was very subject to wear. If it works OK now, figure on being as kind to as the previous owner was.

Is the gearbox a cast iron or aluminum case? Check with magnet on a stick.
