As others have said, you have a fantastic car and a great story to go with it.
Since you are understandably safety-conscious, I strongly advise that you replace all of the steel brake lines and the master cylinder. Steel brake lines rust from the inside out, and can fail when you apply the brakes.
I also agree with the advice to replace the fuel lines and tank. I would also have the carburetor professionally rebuilt. A troublesome carburetor will frustrate your restoration efforts.
Enjoy your car!
