Old 3.5 - what to keep

Need some advice regarding my recent engine swap. I just swapped in a new 3.9 and have the old 3.5 completely torn down in garage. I will make a coffee table out of the block and pistons (only because the block was the original to my truck) and the rest is in a pile. I have been told to keep the front cover and V belt setup but wondering if anything else worth keeping? I have manifolds, heads, crank, carbs intake, etc. Really want to clean out - Thoughts?

Old exhaust manifolds can be pricey and difficult to find.

Agreed, Thanks. I really liked them so they were used on the new motor to keep it looking original.
