Concord Pro-II Need Advice

This is my fathers old bike from when he was in college(1970's). I want to restore it for him. I have included some pictures of the bike. Please give me some advice on the restoration, year, or any other info about the bike.
Thanks,
Mike

Kind of hard to tell much from the pics, except that (edit: can't spell ) oxalic acid will be your friend. Do a search on it in this forum.

The crank shows that it was not a real high end offering, but it could still be a serviceable ride.

if you are going to search, you might as well search for Oxalic acid instead

Someday that "low end department store bike" may well be a very fond momento of a much beloved parent.

(hey, this is the guy that spent $300 at the vet's to fix my $2 hamster). Then, after he died, it would join my stable where it would get an occaisional ride
