From a financial perspective, it will probably be a disaster if the guy gave it to you for free. How big a disaster depends on what is wrong with it that caused someone to walk away from a repair bill, and what else you need to fix. Try to get a test drive so you can at least assess the transmission, brakes, and suspension.
But I agree that it would be a lot of fun to bring it back to life.
