65 fintail new owner

this is my first venture to the classic foreign car world. Im a classic car fanatic but i traded a 4x4 s10 straight up for this car. i love it shes rusty, but shes a real beaut. I have a plan to do a full rebuild after i finish my 47 ford truck. right now i drive the car around town a few times a week, im having rough idles and bogged acceleration(puttering). everything else is great, i have an oil leak and trans leak at the pans.

any ideas on what i should do to get it running pefectly? Where to get new gaskets. anything i need to do to get er running tip top

thanks
