Default next project can't decide what to build

I'm currently working on a 37 Chevy sedan that's almost road worthy and when I return from deployment in September I want to either buy a finished project if the market is still hurting or start another car preferably kit and I want to build all but thought I could seek outside opinions.
Here is my list-1923 c cab with 406 small block Chevy tunnel RAM or blower, 1949 anglia pro street with 390fe 2x4 or injection, 1940 Ford coupe 454 twin blower OUT OF PRICE RANGE AFTER DEPLOYMENT, 1955 Ford f100 7.3 diesel or 460

The first two I want fiberglass I have cores for the engines except the 460 and 7.3 diesel I don't have those but the 406 is already partly built just need a set of heads of 72 cc or more to make it streetable. The c cab by far would be the cheapest and the are not very common either but neither are anglias in my area. But I could try and just find a t bucket done and change the body might be cheaper

First; Thanksyou for your service to our great country !
Second, a turnkey driver will get you on the street a whole lot faster than a project car. I know when I got out waaaaaay back in '71 the last thing I wanted to do was 'build' a car. I wanted to DRIVE !! I wanted street action, NOW !
