No, get the S not the d
The coupe is a better investment but the sedan is ok if you get that same car below $15K (unrestored but in good condition)

The guy has $135k in restoration costs. Look at the pictures and believe it. Generally speaking a car has to be worth well over $100k to qualify for a thorough restotation to good standards. This poor guy flushed the money down a toilet. I would like to be the one to take advantage of it. Even if you did the owrk yourself you would have far more than the car is worth.
