I hope it wasn't scrapped. I have a parts car, 1972 250 that has a rusted body but a lot of good parts that would aid in the restoarion of the car.....

The reason stated for being a scrap candidate was that the frame was bent.

Parts wont fix that.

There's so many things you can do with these cars, for example sell all parts, and then once you have only the frame left, you can still use it for another project - if it was bent at the back you can cut the front and use it for a pickup project The W115s are really DIY cars!
