Unfortunately, many bikes and brands that targeted casual riders don't have as much information available as the bikes targeted toward the enthusiasts of the time.

You can probably not find out a lot more about your bike than you can by looking at the labels and components yourself. The bike looks in great shape, so I think it is worth more than what you paid.

You might be able to get a good idea of the manufacturing year if you can find date codes on any components... assuming that the components are original.

What does the sticker on the seat tube say? I am guessing it probably says something like hi-tensile steel, since the bike is not a high end one. How does it ride?
