Olympus FTL's are pretty thin on the ground, and among relatively few M42 mount cameras with full-aperture metering, and the Olympus name has some panache among collectors... all of which conspires to hold the camera's value above that of other M42 SLRs. I don't know where it would be priced these days, some time ago it was maybe between $100 and $150 with the normal lens. Zuiko lenses to fit are also desirable, at least among people who have the camera and can use the full aperture metering functions of the combination.
Keep watching eBay to get an idea of prices, they come along from time to time. I've had two of them, one with the 35, 100 and 50/1.4 lenses, a nice outfit. It was not quite as nicely made as the OM1, but comparable with a Pentax and with very nice lenses and features.
