Found an Emglo Compressor - what should I offer?

I came across a tire shop going out of business - the guy is sort of my neighbor and I know him to talk to him. His dad owns the business, but his son is handling getting everything out of there. (I had stopped in to get a tire mounted and discovered this)

The compressor is an Emglo - pretty sure it is a W5C-80C - 5 hp 2 stage 16.7cfm @100psi. I'm pretty sure it is single phase which is what I need. These are 4 cylinder pumps which I haven't come across before. I'm not sure of the vintage, but it was there to primarily run impact wrenches I think.

What is a fair price for this unit? New it is around $1700 or so. I'm not sure how old it is, nor if this guy bought it second hand - not looking to rip him off, but I don't want to pay much either. Is an offer of $300 too cheap?
