Stem shifters, steel crankset, turkey levers, claw rear derailleur hanger, steel handlebars = entry level bike. Looks to be a high ten steel frame as well.
The wheels are replacements. The bike probably originally came with 27 inch wheels (not the 700c size that is on there now). 700c wheels are an upgrade.
Shimano derailleurs will have date codes on them, so it iwill be easy to get the year of the bike that way, as long as they are original. Many other parts will also have date codes, but several do not look original to me.
