How many miles before using Synthetic oil

Thinking about running synthetic oil in my new engine, I'm thinking it's got about 5000 miles on it now. Maybe I should start with semi synthetic and then use the real stuff at my next change. This is a mild build that is street driven mostly in summer months and stored in the winter, I'm thinking maybe 10W-30
Any thoughts,

1956 Ford F100...466/C6, Edelbrock aluminum heads and Preformer intake w/750cfm carb, Comp. cam , H/S roller rockers, MSD lighter, KB flat top pistons, Currie rear end, B & M shifter, tubbed, Ididit column
