JC Higgins Info and Value

Looking for any info on this JC Higgins Bicycle and what the value might be. It is definitely in "fixer upper" condition. I can add more pics if needed and get more info if needed. Any help on this is greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
JL

If it is yours, the fork is backwards. Rotate the stem 180 degrees. Raise the saddle a couple of inches.

Well it's a pretty basic low end 60's model sold through Sears. In it's current really rough condition not worth much fairly nice examples of similar bikes show up listed in most markets in the $200 price range and don't sell. Not really collectiable and not much value as a rider.
