"Sitting on the floor, 'Supposedly it runs'" leaves a big wide gap. The brother wanting one and then backing out, would raise a big red flag to me. As it sits, I wouldn't go over $100 on it. If they get it running, depending on a compression test, it could be worth up to $500. (Even if it starts and runs, doesn't guarantee that it has good compression, nor does it prove that the block is not cracked or otherwise damaged.
