The under dash setup should be no problems, the condensor (the bit that goes in front of the radiator) again should be ok too. The bit that changes between six and eight cyl is the compressor mounting brackets. These should be around if you chase the wreckers. They don't have to be off your model either, as long as the bracket you buy is designed to bolt your model compressor to your type of engine. They can be had aftermarket through auto airconditioning specialists too.

It's not so much what it's worth, but how much to get it going again. How is the underdash fan motor? all the foam insulation inside the evapourator case? (has it disintergrated) is the compressor clapped out, remember this is over 30years old. Has the system got gas in it now? once gas is removed and air gets in you'd be wise to have compressor seals changed etc, etc. I wouldn't pay too much for it either way. $50-$100 Max in my opinion. I think it's about $2000 approx to drive into an auto air shop and have a full aftermarket underdash aircon fitted. Remember, even if it's working in the donour vehicle right now, this doesn't always mean you can just bolt it in and gas it up. Refrigeration is a finicky business at times.
