I think the best thing you could give him is inspiration.

something to inspire him to do the project. a lot of guys lose focus and either never get started or they become overwhelmed and never finish.

shortly after I owned my first 1980 280zx, I bought a plastic model car kit that was a 280zx (right hand drive) and in the scale of 1/24.
I built it and made it look like my actual 280zx car. same paint color, same interior color, same wheels. the model had a T-top, so I had to modify it to look like a slick-top. when I was done, I had a miniature version of my own car, only in plastic form. still have it to this day. it inspired me.
looking at that model now, it makes me want to restore my own 280zx car, customize it the way I want it, using my own dream and vision.

parts can be found anywhere.
give your dad something that will inspire him.
