Worth restoring? Old Montgomery Ward mixte 3 speed.

My girlfriend picked up an old Montgomery Ward internal 3 speed mixte for $50 because she thought it was the cutest thing in the world. She wants to have it restored. By that I mean she wants to get the frame, fork, and fenders painted, the chrome polished, and the bike overhauled.

I can see the charm of the bike, but it looks like it was probably a fairly low end bike even in its time. Is it worth putting say $300 into?

Sit down with her on craigslist or eBay and show her what she can get in vintage $300.00 bikes, then see if she still is in love with this one . . .
