Muscle car from the ground up

I'm looking to build a muscle car from the ground up. Well actually all I consider changing is the Engine, tranny and rear end. I would like some suggestions on the following:

1.crate engines,probably gonna be a chevy, ideally 400-475hp (Where to buy a turnkey?)
2. automatic transmission (B&M Turbo 400?)
3. Rear end (What size and where to find em?)

I'm looking for street ability as well as strip cababilities. I would like the car to be reliable enough for Sunday driving, yet deliver enough horsepower and speed for a good 1/4 mile and 0-60 time. I have about 5-6k for the engine, 1-1.5k for the tranny and i'm not sure how much a rear end will be.

If you have any suggestions or opinions please feel free to respond. I could really use the advice. Thanks.
