With the things wrong, I suggest parking it for a while. Pull the engine if you can and "refresh it" (ie get new gaskets/check compression and maybe get it rebuilt), its got 200k+ maybe on it? And if its leakin and needs some suspension work too, your best bet is probably to try and do it all at once. That's always the ideal sonario, but 90% of the time you just want to drive it ... You'll waste a ton more time trying to fix everything with the engine in the car, and yes this will lead to a lot more money being spent on the little things ie vaccuume lines, fixing the wiring harness, shifter bushings etc but if you manage some self control and have a few funds already, you'll be singin in a few months

You have a gem to work on, so keep things simple and do it right the first time
