My opinion: If you're looking at this as a long-term project and are fully convinced you can fund it, I'd do things in this order:

- Fully assess running condition of engine and transmission
- Disassemble the car right down to the shell
- Identify parts that need replacement; identify what can be salvaged/reconditioned
- Start searching for parts
- Send the shell out for all the bodywork/paint required
- Refresh engine/transmission
- Receive clean, painted shell back from painter
- Sort out all electrical wiring/harnesses
- Be sure to replace fuel lines through the tunnel
- Reassemble

Engine/transmission drop is relatively easy. It's much easier to deal with suspension/brake rebuilds on a "clean build" with engine/transmission out than to do it piecemeal.
