If you like this one, you won't hurt the value by restoring It, especially if that's the only way that Wifey will let it stay in the house. The top is pushed in, so if that can't be pulled satisfactorily, it may need a donor lid.
It's actually not in bad condition like it is though.
The cost of resto will not be able to be recouped, but it will look a lot better. IMO

I've seen provisions on the sides for something like handles possibly, but never seen actual side handles on A1's.
Are there any pics available?

That's a nice cooler but as referenced above the lid is the issue aesthetically.
I would keep original and try to find a beat up 7up with a good lid and swap out the lid.
