What is the right-off value at that age, could be a big mistake bowing to sentiment

The deal breaker is the rust. Everything else could be sorted with a bit of ducking and diving- but the tin worm------------

If you are paying a garage to do all that work,  £1000 is not going to be nearly enough IMHO.  And even if you got the sills properly cut out and the rust eliminated,  there's still the state of the body shell at the back, which will be much more costly to deal with than the sills, and is going to have to be faced before long even though its just an advisory at present. I would reckon its not worth the effort in a 15 year old vehicle where yet more things are bound to let go in the foreseeable future.

get another , £1000 will buy a good one with MOT

take off any good bits and scrap it,
or advertise it on the Facebook group for spares.
