Lots of oil on every spark plug - Ranger 2.3L

I just bought a ford truck with an engine in bad shape. I got a good deal so I am ok with it.

That aside, there is oil in every chamber. What could that mean? Can all cylinders go bad at once? Could it be something else? I find it odd, or maybe they are all bad. I have heard some guys mention a PCV Valve?

If the cylinders are bad.. that means a rebuild. Has anyone done it with the engine in the truck?
