Click on Go Advanced and add file. The photo should post.
Usually, it is the fifth number in the Raleigh sequence that
indicates the year of manufacture, but since Raleigh has
been making the Grand Prix for several decades, the 1 isn't
much help. What color is it?

+1 $169 is a bout the high end for a nicer Grand Prix in near prestine condition fully serviced ready to ride with good tires. Typical thrift store Grand Prix likely 80's Huffy built one in rough condition $50. I couldn't see paying more than $100 for a thrift store GP even if it's in great shape.
