Depends on what model it is : coupe or sedan.
If you can pick it up cheap, you can use the bits you need, sell those you don't and at least breakeven or even make a nice return.
There are certain parts that will sell easy : front wings (if they are good), headlamps, instrument cluster, switches, wood, wing mirrors, alloy wheels and even the interior.
Certain other parts are really only worth dismantling for a breaker, like window regulators, suspension components - unless you have someone who is looking for these there and then. Breakers can store these parts forever - but like Shrimpton said, keeping lots of parts / scrap metal ni the garden may cause a few domestics :-)
If you pick up the car for $500 you should easily make that back in parts sales - but also consider the cost of collecting and then scrapping the car once you have finished.
Finally, I think it's the best way of learning about these cars - buy a breaker and take it apart. It's the best manual !
