I'm pretty sure the camelbacks had 26" wheels; they were just a shorter version of the Speedster. The OP's bike looks to be a '70, based on the five-spoke chainwheel and two-tone saddle. The second letter in the serial number is the key to the year; the 'K' means October.
Even with 26" wheels, I'd still say $50-$75. Where I live, it could be flipped for $120-$140 once it's cleaned up; lots of college girls looking for a short-framed campus bike.
And to answer OFG's question: No kid wants a three-speed. They don't want a road bike, period.
