Help on this vintage Sears please

Hello all,

Brand new here, and very uneducated on vintage bikes, but there seems to be a ton of knowledge here so I'm hoping someone can help me out.

I'm looking for a casual rider/grocery getter and came across the Sears example. Can anyone tell me if this would suffice and what is a good/fair price to pay? (Men's version)

Thanks for any help!

Those old bikes are well built and make perfect commuter bikes. Sure, they are heavy and slow, but who cares? Worth around $100 - $150 in my area. I was looking at an old Huffy 3 speed like that and almost bought it.

Those look like cottered cranks on those. Might be the legendary Sears bikes made in Austria. Already equipped with nice rear racks. I'd replace the tires if they look the least bit worn out. God knows how old they are. Around here you could probably get about $75 each for those.

Sears bikes of that vintage from Austria were likely made by Puch (Steyr-Daimler-Puch) in Graz. Nice little bikes. Looks like they might have 3-speed coaster brake hubs. Some folks like those but I prefer a non-CB 3-speed.
