It looks to be in great shape and probably at least 30-40 years old. Hard to say when it was built.
It is not all original. Some of the parts are fairly modern.

I am guessing from the picture it is probably worth $300-500 dollars.
If it has a radio system with it, it may be more.

It will be worth more to a collector than someone who wants to run it.

The instruction manual for the motor makes it worth more.

It's very cool looking! If he wants to sell it, have him put it on eBay. The market will generate the value and could surprise him.

He has had it for 40 years as he got it when he was 8 and is now 48.

Handset not sure think he may have it.

Also as far as I am aware all the parts are the original ones as he has only used it a couple of times as there is no where big enough to run it as it is supposed to go about 60MPH he has started it a few times just to see if it works ok.
