According to the price guides I use, $1600 for 1969 Beetle in fair condition. Fair: runs and drives OK but needs work throughout the vehicle. Body shows signs of wear or previous restoration work. Any rust should be minimal and not in any structural areas. Cosmetics, body, and mechanics all need work to some degree.

depends on the actual condition. rust is a major factor. if there is rust the value goes down. another BIG factor is location of the car. around here a 69 bug in decent condition (maybe a little rust in the floorpan but NONE in the heater channels) that runs and drives is worth around $1200-$1500. now the interior should be good, the paint should be good, the engine/trans should be good. if any of these are shoddy, ripped, dirty, and overall not working right, the price goes down. i've bought a couple for under $1000 that ran and drove. remember that the newer the vw, the less it's worth. 69 is considered in the "newer" bodystyle and won't be worth near as much as a 66 or older.
