Is this worth restoring?

This is a 4dr 1962 Chevy 2......n to the lame person.....63 nova. ANYWAYS we brought it from nebraska when we moved to oklahoma....why i have no idea. But it had been sitting in a feild for around 25 years and for some reason we baught it. But its sitting in our shed and im itching to start a new project. I just dont want to start something that wasnt worth starting. The motor isnt seized up but the entire car got ransacked by feild mice. The insides of the car and the apolstry is trash. The dash is the only good part. But heres a pic to show its condition.

It doesnt look too bad, i think it'd be a cool little project and would be worth some time/effort and money. I dont see very many of those around (2 or 4 doors).

That car was called "the Deuce", and it is worth fixin up. Retro a 327 in that badboy, and leave it a sleeper, and watch the faces of the people you leave at the light.

I don't notice any mention of Nova's nowadays on ANY of the shows I watch. I would tell ya to check with NPD, (not to step on any sponser here), but I don't know for sure if they have anything either.

I didnt know if this was true but my stepdad said the car is worth even more cause of the hub caps saying Chevy instead of Chevrolet on them. Not sure. I wouldnt think it would make that big o diff.
