To start - its probably worth more to put a used engine in than to junk the car. Normally a dealer is the right choice for a second opinion, but you may want to get a third. I know it will not be free, but the story you are getting from the shop sounds fishy. Changing a coil would not cause the engine to lock up, and I've never heard of being able to see a problem on the outside of an engine unless it has a connecting rod sticking out.I would want to know why the engine seized, and if it can be fixed before you consider replacing it.

Make sure you know where the coolant is leaking from and do not let it run to low and overheat. If the check engine light is only flashing and not staying on steady this signifies a soft code or pending code. So this issue must've just started I assume. A PO300 code means it has a multiple cylinder misfire.
Be aware that overheating as well as misfiring are the biggest reasons for a catalytic converter to plug. Just another reason to remedy the situation as soon as possible.

When you changed spark plugs did you notice any oil on the insulator or wire plug? Or any oil in the hole that the spark plugs are in? This model of LS were built with gaskets that seem to always fail. Lincoln came out with new gaskets in 2002 or 2003. If there was any oil in the above mentioned places your coils (COP Coil on plug) could be shorting out due to the oil degrading the insulator on the cops.The fix for this is to replace the valve cover gasket set with the upgraded set. Also it's almost impossible to find which coil is bad, and I recommend replacing all eight of the COPS. You can find them online pretty reasonable. I have used these and they seem to perform as good as the Dealer parts, but at a fraction of the cost. This solved the problem on my 2001 LS V8. Also these cars are known to have problems with the timing chains, which could also cause your problem. The adjuster shoes that keep the timing chain tight are plastic and wear out and come loose. Some times causing the engine to jump time and in the worst case could allow the pistons and the valves to come in contact. That will destroy the engine.
