Affirmative on the year.

It was a fabulous deal at $13. It has great potential.

From appearances, it needs a complete overhaul (a thorough cleaning &polishing/new tires/lube &bearing/new ss cables/housing/bartape/shoes/& chain) and it would be best to replace the sprung mattress saddle with something more period appropriate.
I would also remove the reflectors, dork disk, and the safety levers, and add some new brake hoods.
At that, it would bring $120-140 in the spring.

And, for a few more bucks, you could re-spoke it, and get some alloy rims, and DT shifters or barcons and keep it yourself! (As I said, it has great potential!)
