EBay will have loads of similar camera kits to get price history and current asking price data from. Don't expect a ton, the k1000 is popular as someone mentioned but it is ubiquitous so buyers have loads of choices.

The body and the two lenses are all entry-level equipment and very abundant on the used camera market, so they're not worth much money. Also, that version of the K1000 body was manufactured in China, not Japan, which reduces the value. If they're all in working order and don't have fungus on the lenses, looking at "Sold" listings in ebay, you could expect to get less than $100 USD in total for all three items.

The K1000 is certainly not rare - millions were made and AFAIR it is the most numerous SLR ever.
More than 3 million were made. But production doesn't come close to the Zenit E family. Something like 9 million...

You have an SMC M F2 50 mm lens, I have used them for years. They sell for 30 dollars on EBay. I wish I still had my SMC A 50mm F1.2...they sell for $600+ on EBay. I sold that when I purchased my SMC A *400mm F2.8. I still have my "made in Japan" K1000, Great camera in mint condition, even the only electronic thing on it, the light meter, still works! But I doubt I get sell it for $150. Your zoom is not much in demand these days, Here is an image I made of my camera and lens in a 1993 Photoshop class...
