Looks a little beat but restorable; whether you want to do so is up to you - I'm thinking a good couple hundred right up front to reset the neck and seal the cracks/seam separation, but since you paid nothing you should net a serviceable jazzbox in the bargain (BTW those old Harmonys were made from solid woods - not particularly refined-sounding but plenty of acoustic punch and bark, should translate well into the amplified tone). Unfortunately IMO you'll probably just about recoup your repair costs if you decide to flip it - if it were me I'd take it to a tech for an estimate, and if it's within your budget fix it and enjoy it as a period piece...
