Question How to determine what motor to use?

Ok, so new to the Rc plane world and was wondering how to determine what motor and prop to use. I lately just found a model that's built to fly but has no electronics or servos in it. It's made of wood and fabric and has a wooden propeller. It's a T-6, Harvard model with less perfect accuracy. It's wing span is just under 53" and is 35" long. It weighs less than a pound(pretty close though). All control surfaces move but some are jammed with tape that is unneeded and can easily be fixed. The main wing is detachable.

What I need to find out is what electric motor and other electronics I should use for a low cost.(brand new to flying and will probably crash it within 5 flights)
