oil leaks 300SL

Opinions please! After having my 300SL serviced, the mechanic advised me the head gasket, front timing cover,rear main seal, and valve cover are all leaking. The car has 53,000 miles and is driven 2 to 3k per year. Averaged 5000 per year the first ten years.

Does all this make sense? Or should I sense someone is looking for business? Assuming they are leaking, which are the most critical to replace. The quote was $2500 for all the work. Is this reasonable. I'm in Ohio.

Thanks, Jim
