Go for it?
First 250 or 350 ?? BIG difference...
There is easily $3000 he has into what you have listed that you would otherwise not have to spend. Check for blow by by doing the oil fill cap test. Check rad support, oil pan for leaks, hows the tires... Verify what he has done with receipts, especially clutch and sticks.
$7500 might be a bit steep if its a 350, if its a 250 with the TTB its WAY steep.
If it all checks out start at $6k and see what he says, but i wouldnt go more than $7k on it.
