Default Rogers Holiday Set question.

An aging friend is now in assisted living and his family is clearing out and has sold his house already. He wanted me to get the drum set before it was thrown away, which I was able to get before it started raining, it was already at the curb! It's a 1962 Holiday set in Black Onyx Pearl wrap from what I can tell. All the serial numbers are low 30,000. I've restored a lot of snare drums, but this one is missing a ton of parts along with the common cracked lug assemblies. Appears to have two original Rogers heads on bass and floor tom which is cool. I'd like to get my friend some money for the set but fear it would take to long and too much money to get back in complete condition, lots of weird little and big parts missing. Snare: missing one complete lug assembly, the back plate that holds the strainer on the clock face throw is gone, no snare wires/strainer, visual cracks in other lug assemblies. Bass: three complete lug assemblies missing and two lug screws, spur tightener for top, tom arm missing adjustment screws. Floor and small tom are just missing some lug screws. Perhaps a few more minor issues. Would it be better to just list each piece for sale individually or the whole kit in "as is" condition? Auction the best route to go or are there people here with lots of pieces parts that can help with a restoration at a reasonable cost? You're expert advice will be appreciated.
