Thanks to all for the comments. I'll see what I can work out, but I want 
to give him what's fair. I notice the ebay prices (per usual) are all 
over the place.

As to what he would do with it (actually both of my brothers but one is 
more invested than the other), they have a large stash of Corvair parts 
and a smaller stash of 55 - 57 Chevy car parts and 47 - 59 GM truck 
parts. So it's all just part of the "collection".
