buying used question

Hi all,
I have lurked on here before and enjoy reading all your posts, seems like a good crew. I have an opportunity to buy a 1974 450 SL with the hardtop. Not sure what condition the soft top is in. Car has 175000 miles, 2 owners. I know the current owner very well, and he has owned the car since the early 80's.
Car is in pretty good shape, I don't think it has been driven much in the last few years, stored in a climate controlled building.
Main question is what do you guys think the car is worth? what is the typical yearly upkeep?
Thanks in advance and please let me know about anything I should do before buying.
