If you part it out, the parts you need to complete it will show up next week... If you decide to restore it, you will be searching for twenty years...

That being said, I would start the restoration process first on the cabinet getting rid of the worms and filling the holes then refinishing the case. The motor looks good, so I would de-rust the metal parts and wait patiently... I would contact Jalal at the Phonogalerie in Paris, to see if he has any helpful contacts to locate parts... It's definitely a worthwhile project...
