I've done this on 3.0s a couple of times many years ago. They are TTY, and they do take oil. Plus the ones I had were metric Allen bolts so you'll need a special bit as well as finding the torquing procedure, which I've forgotten, but it does involve an angle gauge. A general PITA and it may not be worth it for $1500 retail value when you can scrap the car for $500 or more.

The other problem with oil consumption is worn valve guides, which is what also takes out the stem seals. Those heads had soft guides which wear badly, and early models also didn't have them secured in the heads to they moved. Later models had them circlipped in place, yours would have been later so the guides may be alright.
