water in cylinder

I hav e a 69 442, I left my car at a shop to be painted,i told the owner to keep car inside as it was apart. I wrapped the engine to keep it safe as was just rebuilt.when I went to check on car found it outside,raised hell.they put it back inside.eventually took car out of shop because not happy,when I got car home tried to turn engine by hand to keep free, water came out of spark plug holes on two cylinders,motor did turn over a little.pulled off heads found corrosion inside got most cleaned up,but one cylinder concerns me,don't want to tear completely down,or replace engine .car is original numbers matching,any suggestions?

I think I would have done a bit more than scream at the dude. He would be getting out of the ER about now.........

It depends on how severe the corrosion is. Post a picture if you can. Best case scenario may be remove the piston in the cylinder in question, hone that cylinder and check the result.

Sorry to hear and good luck!!!
