Transplanting a 85 Corvette 350/700R4

I have a running 85 corvette that was in a slight rollover. The car runs and drives but the right side roof is caved in, glass is broken, and has been open to the elements.

So, I want to transplant the engine/transmission to a 65 chevy pickup. I can read schematics somewhat and do fair with 12V systems.

1) How hard is it to move all the modules and wire the motor and trans.

2) I know that the motor is only about 235hp but wanting it for a daily driver.

3) What is the cheapest way to wire the engine/trans...reuse the existing wiring harness or bite the bullet and get a painless or generic harness to do the job.

4).... or do you recommend to reuse the 400/th350 currently in there because of easier than wiring in the 1985 setup.

Thank you in advance
