You would think it would be worth more than that. I mean, a 1970 Plymouth Hemicuda recently sold for $250,000 (and I don't think it was on an album cover). Of course, the Hemicudas are much more sought out and desired. Still, I would have guessed at least $10,000 for a famous VW. I wonder why the price was so low? Probably needed a complete restoration.
