1978 300SD Turbo Diesel

Im one of those guys that hauls in unwanted vehicles around the community and disposes of the junk. A few days ago i got a 78 300SD Turbo Diesel 4dr sedan. It was left for dead after a couple pieces were robbed under the hood. I'm just wondering if it is worth saving to part out or should i just put it through the machine and send it on its way as a metal pancake. Are there enough requests out there for the parts? This is my first Mercedes, i am located in southeastern B.C. in Canada. I only have this one picture at the moment.
