Should I sell to a restorer/

I have inherited a 1966 Fiat 600. It is in resonable condition but has not run for 10 years and needs serious work to restore it to its former glory. A local classic car restorer has offered me £800 but says it will be worth far more if I break it up and sell it for spares. Would this be worth the time & effort? Would it fetch more on Ebay? The car belongs to a friend who has suffered a massive stroke and I want to the best for him.

It's actually very difficult to take an old FIAT 600 to bits. Many of the valuable parts such as the lights simply break. So I'd take the restorer's offer.
