"You don't have to change anything permanently to go fixed. Save your derailleurs, shifters, cables, stack bolts, freewheel, other chainring, etc. in case you ever want to go back."
That would be a smart way to do it. Run it by your dad, he may think it's a neat idea, especially if you can carefully put it back "as it was" later, or at least have the parts around as an option to do so. Depending on condition and market, $50 to $200 is a rough price range. For $200 it probably would have to be like "N.O.S." in alot of markets.
