Trek 310 Elance

I have an '86 Trek 310 Elance that I got about 4 years ago. I was still rather ignorant about frame sizing back then, so it's a tad bit too big for me. I rode it for a few months and got another bike, so it's been hanging from my parents' garage ceiling. I "gave" it to my dad, but he just turned 59 and I don't think he's going to ride it any time soon.

ANYWAY, the urge has struck to buy a new frame. The wifey (and main breadwinner) only supports this if I let go of a bike first. I bought the bike for $250. I've ridden it very little, but also due to my ignorance there are now some scratches under the down tube from inappropriate bike rack use. Otherwise, it's in great shape. Even has the original 27" (not 27 1/4) wheels. Anyone honestly know how much I should ask for it? I know it's a pretty rare bike that was only made for one year, so that should be a good selling point.
