I hope the car is in reasonable condition because there is lots that can need fixing.

Make a REALISTIC plan of what all needs to be done (don't leave anything out) and come up with a budget. Add 10 to 20% to that and you'll have an approximate idea of what it will cost. It may be more than you can come up with.

You could also spend the next 3 years working part-time and save up enough for a decent, older restoration that will probably cost you much less than your restoration cost.

If you go this route, take time over the next three years to explore every inch of your '68 so you'll be able to expertly look at another 1800 and know how to spot a good one from a fake. Then, once you've got a nice one, sell your old model to the next guy with a dream.

Post some pix of the car.

I'm sure you'll get some opinions on where to start.
