Since you can't drive it no one can tell. The owner could free up the wheels so you can test drive it and price it according to it's condition or he can get rid of it for scrap price and free haul away.

I would offer 300 for it. That is about what you can get for scrap

Yeah...since they are locked up you will probably end up completely rebuilding the front brakes
