You ran it for less than 15 minutes or so ? Just drain the oil and step up to 10-w30 and drive it. You may of had a sufficient oil film to minimize damage. I ran an old school Boss 302 with a seized oil pump for 3 or so miles once and a 260 fairlane for 14 miles without oil pressure , most likely you have some main bearing damage , a thicker film oil could help. nothing to lose motor could run ok for another 20 k or so.
Wow that sucks. My neighbor did that once with a numbers matching 1970Chevelle convertible 396. Within moments it wrecked the original engine and he wound up having to replace it with a crate motor instead.
