Correct.  The value that someone placed on this was because it really
was made as a briefcase to look like an Indy...not as an "aftermarket
conversion".  They're pretty rare...the last one I happened upon on
eBay was in the US and went for ~$150 as well.

Now the question of *why* is a different thing.  I might pay $150
for a functional "Indigo Cafepresso" espresso machine...but why would
I want a friggin' blue briefcase?
