Welcome to the Club!! I'm not a restoration expert, but I think it would depend on why you would want to restore. If it is for financial gain, then chances are you will end up spending more $$ in time finding parts, labor, cost of parts, etc., than you will get in return. However, if this is something that you see as more of a passion or hobby, and are planning to keep, then it will probably be worth it (to you).

The white interior isnt rare enough to justify restoring the truck.
If you want a classic truck then restore it but there were actually lots of those trucks built with white interior, it wasnt the most popular color (that was the brown followed by grey).
If you want to find a rare interior look for a notched bench seat with a flip up center section that has a consul underneath the seat will be either white with red inserts on the drivers and passengers side or black with red inserts, the black is harder to find.
You'll find these seats in 76, 77, and 78 C1500 shortbeds with the 454 and either a Turbo 400 or in some especially rare cases a 4 spd muncie. They were considered Chevy's "SS" trucks of the day, they dont carry any extra insignia.
