I recently paid 175 GBP for a similar frame, which (with shipping) came to over $400, knowing the paint was not original and not very good. If you have original paint in good shape, then it's worth considerably more.
How much more? I don't know, but a good professional paint job will run $300 - $600 depending on this and that, and in my opinion a new paint job will never be as desirable as original paint; so if your original paint is like new, that adds a premium.
