advice needed on '64 190d fintail

Question for you fintail experts...what do you think a 1964 190D with a blown engine is worth? Otherwise the car is in great shape due to it's low mileage....69,000 original plus or minus. Body is straight, paint fine, chrome intact, as far as I can tell no rust. Leather great, headliner great, seals okay but a little aged as suspected, glass intact, undercarriage has no signs of damage, under the hood is very clean. Apparently, with little warning it started smoking like crazy and limped to the mechanic. They didn't get in to it because the owner didn't want to spend $200 on the estimated analysis. Can't blame him. Mechanic suspects exhaust valve prob and assumes the worst, rebuilt engine. Owner says his bottom dollar is $1000 as-is. The car is in California and has most of the records and history including the original bill of sale.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated,
