Rat Rod (might be fixed?)

If your timing is moving then check the length of the securing bolt as it could be bottoming out in the block

Oil splashing from filler cap and PVC valve...

Alloy covers are well known for this even on a good engine.
Why not make some baffles and bond them in

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Shropshire is awash with Classic Cars - too many to mention.
Currently in Telford in an event called Summer Trials

no oil pressure

pour a little diesel fuel around the base of the dizzy and block -
Then remove the vacuum advance unit and apply a filter strap to the body and twist.
If this fails then sump off- oil pump off and drive the dizzy out from below using a nylon or wooden drift

Are there any puddles or moisture on the inlet manifold recesses .
I would check the tightness of all 8 bolts.
Pull the plugs out and check electrode colour maybe post a picture.
You could be trying to burn coolant , and you did say the temp was rising.
This will give a misfire and loss of power
