You might want to consider a "crate engine". It probably won't cost any more. You'll always be concerned that there might be structural damage to the block and/or heads of the old engine. A good long-block from GM will give you back a lot of confidence in your vehicle.

Should you rebuild the motor if the cylinder heads went out?

Your question doesn't make sense. I'm assuming your heads are ether cracked or warped. But ether of these should not lead to an engine rebuild. If your heads are cracked and are leaking antifreeze they are likely unrepairable and should be replaced. If your heads are warped they must be milled at a machine shop so the surface matches the block again. Another scenario could be valve or something somehow broke and entered the combustion chamber which could score and scar the cylinder walls, that might require a minor rebuild. But you need to rephrase you sentence as a cylinder head cannot go out.
