For safety, I would start with the brakes. Either Original single master cyl, Upgrade to a duel mater cyl., or go for a disc brake conversion. Just make sure the brakes are safe. From the sound of what you describe, its a nice car that doesn't need restored. So the order I would go is Brakes, Suspension, Engine and trans.
As for price? With out some photos, around $20,000 + or - .
