Looks good! these engines usually live happy lives on a diet of Mineral 20W-50, but the 5W-50 Mobil 1 seems to work great!
The lead is probably mostly from being run on leaded gas.

Potassium number is concerning. It may be part of the lead substitute package.

Cool car. How long have you owned it?

Is the 5 quarts of makeup oil due to leaks or usage?

Copper and Lead are way more than 2X the average!

I think you may need bearings really soon......

20W50 with chunks of Moly additives would help extending life, I suppose.
