That's really hard to say without having more detail or seeing the car. How many miles on the body? Does it need suspension/brake work? Does he have receipts on the motor rebuild, what was done, was it done right? Autos are generally less desirable models than the manuals. Assuming most of the problems with the car are cosmetic, $2500 might be a more realistic price on the car.

+1 on the price and the advice Lonestar7 gave. You should also check the car for any modifications that render things inoperable ie aftermarket struts. Check everything you can and run codes. If any problems found the price should drop from there. Good luck.
