Is it worth it to get a 1977 300D up to the point where I can drive on roads?

I've been working on fixing up a 77 300D. It's got about 135K miles on it. I got it to the point where it starts fairly easily and the accelerator no longer sticks like it was. Now I'm at the point where it's going to start to cost a bit to replace things. I need new tires, there are multiple rust holes that will need to be dealt with, a seat belt is stuck and won't come out, 2 windows don't open (I'm hoping that's a fuse problem and I already order a new set of fuses), I need to at least test the brakes, and probably a lot more I haven't found yet. I was wondering if you guys thought it was worth it, not just monetarily, but in general, to get this guy up to full working condition. Let me know what you think, thanks!
