1982 Airstream 310

So Iím looking to by this motorhome. Iíve only seen the outside so far. The only rash is the driver side rear (see pic)
Tires are newer. Needs a long block.
So 2 questions.
Inside is a 7 out of 10
1) worth?
2) does anyone know of a person who i can pay to go over this thing.
The unit is in Joliet Illinois

As always, thanks in advance.

Needs an engine? If you're paying someone expect that to total ~$12k, so take that into consideration.

2-4 for the engine and 8-10k for labor is about right (pre-pandemic), engine has to come out the front, I have the reciepts from previous owners of my unit . Their reman block was $2k and labor $10k.

So thatís a lot of money. Itís at a shop where it got towed to. The guy says the head needs to be shaved. I think Iíll have him repair the ihead and do that.
The seller just wants to sell it.
If anything else once itís running Iíll entertain to re-sell it. Any idea what a guy can sell it for?

I got my running unit that had been sitting for 4 years, for 20k a year ago. There were many people looking at this 88 345. The price was fair for the work that needed to be done still. ( I feel it was)
