Doubt it. Probably frozen/seized. Check an old Buick service manual for any indication of something like that.

If the engine cannot be turned by hand with a 1/2" breaker bar, it's also another indication it is seized/locked up. Probably the pistons have stuck to the cylinder walls.

Jello as oil is a good sign it's wasted inside. Rebuild time.
