Winchester 1873 32wcf worth saving?

There is a rusty Winchester 1873 32wcf rifle down at the local shop. 24" octagon barrel. No butt stock and some smaller parts missing. Serial number is 255K range so maybe 1887? Bore needs to be cleaned up. Would you pick it up and slowly get original period parts in about the same condition to get it working?

My dad has my great uncles 1892 in 32-20. It's a fun little round and companion To a pistol in same caliber. 32-20 has enough juice for deer at close range and it's paper stats belie it's real world performance on humans.
