Using Oil? A quart/1,000 miles

My 360 engine was rebuilt about 5,000 miles ago by the prior owner. I have reciepts on the professional rebuild. My question is it uses about a quart of oil every 1,000 miles but is this normal? It runs great and doesn't seem to burn oil! There is a small leak only at the auto transmission cover shield that
doesn't amount to anything much and doesn't continue while parked. I checked down inside when I replaced the distributor and all the pipe threaded plugs are in place. The cast valve covers don't leak.
I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't care too much and just keep adding oil as needed.
