700r4 swap into 61 impala

Does anyone have a list or can make recommendations on parts required?
I will be in the US in 2 weeks time and would really like to pick up the parts.
My understanding is I will need a shift linkage, TV cable for a Edelbrock carb, lock up kit for torque converter and a transmission mount.
I also plan on rebuilding the transmission but there are so many variations on rebuild kits, and recommendations? Thanks

This kit needs a transmission cross-member, and drive shaft


This kit needs a lot more stuff.

You might find this discussion helpful. I posted some photos of what I did to put a 700r4 in my 64.
I did eventually make a linkage from the stock powerglide kick-down links to operate the TV cable, so things look perfectly stock up top.
