He did state that's in Canadian dollars, so that works out to about @2350 USD. I haven't checked the going rates on these, but it seems reasonable for an '86, if it's in good shape, with no breaks.
That is around the cost of a brand new one. I'd choose a new 50's core Standard over the 86 in most cases if the cost is so close. No contest imo.
