Things to consider:
Any fork that old, even a Marz, will need some help. It may be no good by now, if the seals are shot. The grip shifters from that era are pretty crappy too. Sure, it's got a CK headset, but that's about it. Mismatched levers are never a good sign. Did he have a bad stack and break one? What kind of cranks? Wheels? Hubs? Conti tires that are 5 or 6 years old are probably rotted and cracked.
I know I sound negative, but there's not much to like here. It may just be a money pit, that's not worth the effort. I'd look at it for possibly scrounging some parts, not much more.
