380 SEC advice on purchasing

I am considering buying a 1983 380 SEC. The car has 78k mileage and looks pretty good, interior is 9.5 out of 10, the outside body 9 out of 10. The 116 engine has been disassembled down to the block. (heads and intake manifold in the trunk). It has the single row timing chain. The owner has passed away and no one is certain exactly why the engine was disassembled, they think timing chain problems. I could possibly pull the engine and rebuild along with the timing chain upgrade to double row if I buy it. What is considered a fair price. I will do all the repair work myself and just have to buy parts. Lastly, how can I tell whether or not it is a grey market car.
Thanks in advance for any help
