Rescued Gios Torino Aerodynamic

First post here. On my way to work this week i saw the NYC Dept of Sanitation removing abandoned bikes, which they do from time to time. Sitting in one of their wheel barrows was this Gios, sans rear wheel and seat post. I asked if the team removing them if they were tossing it, they said yes, which I then asked if I could take and they said yes. So here I am. Next move is to figure out what to do. Paint is rough, components are great. LBS said the frame and fork were slightly bent, but not terribly. Minor dent in top tube. Since its steel, I think its fine. No visible structural issues. Should I paint? Should i just get period accurate parts and let it exist as a rat rod of sorts? Happy to hear all yalls thoughts.

Have pics but cant upload ATM???
