My Garage
Should I buy? Help request

I have a chance to buy a true one owner California special in Southern California, and need some help. I first saw this car in 1990, and have stayed in contact with him over the years. He bought the car new at Canoga Park Ford, CA. Now in his 90's, he can no longer drive.
The good: original sea foam green paint, all GT/CS parts are original to the car.
Original Lucas lights, original black stripes and decals.
Original 289-2v with factory A/C. Black interior all original and in very good condition. Dash was always covered, no cracks in dash.
Has original California Black Plates and original pink title.
Original spare tire, owners warranty card and owners manual.
Stock hubcaps nothing fancy nothing missing.
The bad: owner backed into something so the fiberglass tail light panel is cracked. Also dent in lower rear valance panel. There is pitting on Lucas lights and chrome, car has always been under a carport so being near ocean may be a factor. Car is automatic, all lights operational. Original Delco AM radio still works.
Original paint has some blemishes but is straight. I have always wanted this car, and finally have chance, but want to be fair. They said their neighbor has offered 12k, I thought 10 was fair, until I saw the cracked fiberglass panel, so thought 7500 to 8000 was right. What would be a fair and reasonable amount for this car?
