Garage find... 1976 Huffy Independence

Hi guys, when i bought my last house I found this bike hanging in the garage, its a (I'm assuming) 1976 Huffy Independence 10 speed bike. To me it looks all original, and still has caps on the end of the axles. The seat is probably the coolest part of the bike. I put air in the tires and rode it, it rides pretty nice, but it does not shift into high gear (simple adjustment). The front tire does not hold air, and the tires are dry rotted, I'm also assuming they are original. There are scratches on the frame and surface rust on the chrome. Has anybody seen these for sale and whats it worth? I googled it and found a couple, but no prices, and none had the seat like I have. it is missing front reflector, and 1 front brake pad. Posting pics and you should be able to see the condition.
Thanks for looking, Chris
