From your description I will call the value of this car $3500.00 to 4000.00 I have seen rough examples of this vintage coupe sell for less than 1000.00 and extremely nice low mile examples sell for over 10,000.00.
Look under the car for rust on the floors and frame as these cars from the north usually have problems with corrosion.
If the car is rusty but still looks and runs good figure the value to be about 1500.00 to 2000.00
These cars are great drivers and a great value for what you can buy them for. Even a rusty one can provide you with many miles of happy motoring.
If you like the car make the guy an offer, but be careful, you may then own it!
