Looks like its a Katsumi , It appears to be pretty old , only one drive axle ? sole a similar one (same model) imported by Ken Kidder in '63 , it sold for $150, Same drive train , its almost identical , little bit better condition maybe.

If it were me and I weren't going to keep it , I would ebay it with a starting bid of $75 -100 and see if anybody bites .
