I can tell you right now. Find a complete car, try to make it the same year. Take your time and pull everything you'll need a lot and changing transmissions is going to need even more. All the coolant lines, all the wiring from under the hood then it weaves under the fender into the car and goes back to the fuel tank. grab all the vacuum lines, engine mount, make sure you get all the accessories. A/C, water pump, power steering pump, alternator. make sure you grab the throttle and cruise controls cables. As I mentioned in the other thread you'll need the axles and you'll also need the shift linkage, peddles, shifter.

It'll be easier to just strip the car of everything from the rear tires forward. Minus the interior and such of course.
