Unhappy Repair or sell my 97 wagon

I'm not a mechanic at all so I may get some terms incorrect. I have a 1997 Wagon LX (not the V6 engine) that was damaged by a falling tree limb. I need to know if it is worth fixing or if I should sell it for parts.
It is pretty low mileage although a few years back the speedometer stopped working so I'm not sure of the actual mileage. I'm thinking around or under 100k as I was never much of a driver and it had very little miles when I got in in '03.

The tree took out the front and back windows as well as the rear left window. It also put a small dent in the roof.
there is pre-existing damage to the front where the lower faring was ripped off by parking blocks and a fender bender. It is also missing both mirrors. I think I have them both sitting somewhere.

The engine runs fairly well. My father (who is a mechanic) helped me with some engine work. It has new plugs and wires and iirc the timing belt. The AC doesn't blow cold but does blow

I've posted pictures on my facebookz and made the album public. As this is my first post I guess you might have to pm me to get the link.

Please be nice as this is my first post. If I need to take additional pictures, add more information or whatever else just let me know.

Thanks In advance
