If the 77 is close to the 80s models, I would just use a seat belt & not worry. I've seen them in the yards hit hard and have all doors open and close perfectly. That means the passenger compartment was intact.

Fix or not. From a $$ stand point, it is better to find the best example possible as a starting point. On the other hand, if you'll enjoy the process, get the wrenches out. You can usually buy parts cars cheap & sell what you don't need. You'll have a nice toy in the end - which others will want to buy cheap so plan on keeping it.
