1978 390 4spd.

I have a friend that has a 78 with a 390 and granny low 4 spd. He's thinking about selling it, and I've always thought that the idea of a big block and granny manual would be a killer crawler. Not being too familiar with fs Broncos (I have a CJ7 and we had a 74 Bronco), what would be a fair price for one of these (needs carb, runs ok, body and interior passable) and just how common or rare is that engine/trans combo?

I guess I answered my own question, checked the OR Bronco site, 390 wasn't available in 78, it was the 400, and this is definitely a 390. I must be looking at something that was swapped in along the way.
