Get on www.thesamba.com and search for similar vehicles and see what they're asking...with all the engine and body work, I wouldn't take less than $3k...but I'm a V-dub guy.

It looks like it might be worth your time to fix the interior. There are quite alot of VW-centric interior parts suppliers out there at reasonable prices. Try to find your local classic VW club and talk 'em up for tips and trades.
