Wilkommen! Glad you found the site. On a 64, the doghouse (engine cover ) needs to be changed to a 67-70 version, they are wider, to put in a V8, or you could fab one if your talents allow. As far as parts, post what you need here, and someone is bound to have it. We all help each other out, so prices are usually reasonable to downright cheap!
