Truck needs a jump when the temperature is 73 degrees. I have replaced the battery and the alternator. When the temperature is 80 degrees and above truck starts without a hitch. Can you help me find out why this truck can’t hold a charger in cold weather?

So. I am super frustrated. My husband bought a 1970 cadillac hearse with 65,000 mls for $4000 The guy he bought it from showed him it started up.
So, he had been working on it for the past year. Pulled the block, cleaned it repainted it,
Bought a lot of new parts, replaced all the seals etc. He got to the point that he dropped the block back in. Then decided to take it to a small local mechanic (who I was warranty of from the start) who said he would get it “road ready” for him for $2500

The mechanic had it running for a little bit but told my husband the carb was the wrong one and had him pay about $300 for a diffrent one. Then he had one of the guys working for him put the starter on. The guy never put the starter bot on and broke our starter (it shredded ). They ordered a new starter but after that the engine would no longer turn over. The guy said it seized up and he didn’t know why.
My husband had paid him already. But now we have a car that isn’t “road ready” because it won’t turn over now. And we’re in

The mechanic said it would need to be re-machined and that is like $5000
Which we don’t have.

My husband $4000+about $1000 in new parts if not more. And then $3000 to this mechanic who I feel didn’t do what he said and might be the reason the car isn’t working now and it has cost us $8,000 for a car that won’t run. Do you have an opinion?
Could it be this guy’s fault that it no longer will start? Or can this just happen like he says?

as soon as you start car up digital readout says it won’t allow the AC to blow because the car is overheated. after it runs a little bit the heat gauge Arm does not move at all. air condition An gauge everything worked perfectly the drive before. AC will not cool now.

My headlights go on during the daytime but automatically shut off when it gets dark or even if I enter a tunnel. Then my dashboard lights come on but headlights stay off. Is there a sensor that may need to be replaced? And where is its location? Under the hood or in the dash somewhere? Have checked the fuses and they are intact. Please advise
