Hello Classicspeed, welcome to the forums. That looks like a basic model from the later '70s. While there isn't much value to this bike I don't think I would paint it. as long as it is apart I would touch up the real bad spots with some auto touch up and wax the frame real well. You may want to sell it and your have better luck with the original paint and Biancchi decals.
The model is likely a '70 Special or Sport SS, made with a HiTen or Mangalloy frame. This is a great bike to learn the basics of repair and riding on.
