Raleigh Gran Sport 1976???

http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/bik/2296837981.html

2 questions. Is this a 1976? According to the Sheldon Brown article I found it looks closest to that.

Also, is this worth the price? $300

Light weight 23" Carlton frame made of Reynolds 531 tubing , fork & stays .
Shimano 600 Arabesque derailluers , Nervar cranks.
Updated to alloy wheels .
New tires , inner tubes , saddle , handle bar wrap and drive chain

I like the idea that I wouldn't really have to do much of the work - being that I live in a studio apartment, don't have the tools or all the know how. But I was hoping to spend something in the $200 range. However, this is Chicago where everything is going to run a little bit more.
