The answer to this question is closely related to the question of how old the earth is, which has been asked and answered on eBible. The bottom line is this: No one really knows and it would be difficult to prove how old Adam would be if he had never died. Many Christians who accept the Creation account as it is believe the earth is from 6000 years old to 50,000 years old, or somewhere near those parameters. This would make Adam's age somewhere along that continuum.

Adam would probably be around 6,000 years old. He was created around the same time the earth was created, so to find out how old Adam would be, we need to find out how old the earth is. The earth is around 6,000 years old. How do I know? The Bible has all the generations and ages of the people before the birth of Christ recorded like a timeline. If I add their ages, I'll get about 4,000 years. 4,000 + 2,000 (after Christ) = 6,000 years. Thus the earth is 6,000 years old, and Adam would be about 6,000 years old.
