    I would be very surprised if it is blown head gasket (s). Iron engine, iron heads, very difficult to blow head gaskets. Get it to a good garage that can actually do a hydrocarbon test on the coolant. Have you checked the rad and the water pump?

    on easy way to tell if you have mud for oil, also do a coolant flush. how fast is it getting hot is your thermastat opening might be backwards, can you hear your fan coming on.

    If you have milk-shake oil, then its head gaskets. Have a shop do a
    pressure test on your cooling system, that will pin-point your problem if there is a leak.
