Do you have much experience with cars? If not, I'd definitely recommend someone who knows a thing about them - ideally, someone who has experience with old cars, but I appreciate this isn't always possible.
Is it neat? yes
is it practical? no
Will there be "issues" in a build? yes
If i was your age again and I had the money for an automotive build I would get something more practical with an element of fun like a WRX or something but it boils down to its your money and you can do whatever you want with it
Aside from getting the base car in serviceable condition, you also have the huge expense and fabrication required in building the roof rack frame, sourcing lightbars/beacons, and wiring the whole thing up. Since you're wanting to build on a classic car, I presume that you'll want to use either accurate or nearly-accurate vintage parts (i.e. no party beacons or soda bottle air tanks).
What ever you think it will cost to restore it just go ahead and triple that number. Wouldn't even mess with the motor, just go spend $2-3 grand on a crate motor.
