Should I buy this locked up 60gal. compressor?

We let the trusty Porter cable 60gal 7 horse air compressor run out of oil at work. We build cabinets a furniture and used this compressor mostly for finishing.
While spraying the pump locked up and tripped the motors lil breaker. You can still turn the big pump pulley by hand but it is real hard.
The boss man did not want to fool with fixing it and bought a big C.H. 80gal.
Now I could probably buy this old one off him.
What should I pay for it? I mean this it probably only a $400 compressor new right? So what is it worth now? I don't want to pay to much and I am not trying to rip him off either.. Or am I?
