Hey there Patina,
So what you are saying is that you would not only give back all the worn out stock parts, but you would first restore all of those pieces and put them back on the car...hummm
Seems like a very tall and expensive proposition.

In my case that would mean welding up the through holes that were needed to install the Taratt front sway bar, cut off the welded on lower control arm tabs for the sway bar. Cut off the welded on WEVO rear sway bar mounts, and somehow find and reinstall the crappy stock sheet metal ones. Buy all new A/C lines and A/C condenser, rebuild the "auto climate control" box so it actually works. Buy complete new front struts & spindles, source those real cheap ugly Fuchs etc. etc. etc.
Seems like a whole lot of time and $ for a possible increase in value that I highly doubt would match the cost of the reversal process. Now if mine was a "75 or "76 maybe, but not for an "84.

Probably just writing this to hear myself talking....
