Hi Sid,
sounds like you're at the right spot.

Generally, most of us get the safety stuff first (brakes, rubber fuel lines), then reliability stuff, then personal choice as to motor, paint or interior updates. several full-on make-overs here too.
Like Dave said, depending upon your plans for the car, your purchases and $$ spent will be different.

Welcome! Radial tires and brakes is what I did when I got my '65. However it does depend on what you got and budget, for instance a new radiator had to be top of the list for me. Good luck and the more work you put into the more enjoyment you will get out of it!
