One dent can really cut the value (by 25 to 50% depending on size and location). And since you used the term "dents", bike could be worth a lot less than a clean version.
Really need more details and good pictures to give more accurate estimate.
Also if it has the original tires from 40+ years ago, it also probably needs a lot of maintenance: cables, bearings, that kind of thing. A lot of this maintenance can be done for just a few dollars, if you do it yourself. If you pay someone to do it, be ready to spend some $$$.
