67 Cougar XR7

This is my 1967 Cougar XR7 that i inherited from my dad. The last time it was droved was back in 83. It is all original for the most part. I'm going to restore it back to original, the way it came from the factory. It has a 289 engine, c4 transmissions, front and rear drums, a/c, power steering, power brakes, and I'm going to try to find a 8 or 9 inch rear end. Hopefully the floors are not all rusted out or anything like that. There are only a few things that I'm going to change on this car and that's the front end.  It is going to have a coil over suspension with disk front brakes.  The rear is also going to be updated. As for the interior or anything else it's going to stay original except for the motor. The motor is still going to be a 289 but, with a little changes to it. Like gt40 heads, holly 650 or 700 cmf ddp carb, eldelbrock intake, headers, and msd ignition. Let me know if you have any other ideas on what should be done.
