Does anybody know what model this is and what its market value would be? Also, would it be in the right ballpark for a 5'11 person? Thanks.

Very nice looking UO 8 and quite likely to fit you fine. If you can straddle the bike flatfooted with some clearance between your crotch and top tube, you should be fine.

I wouldn't want to pay too much for this bike but it is a classy old 10 speed with a steel cottered crank and steel rims. Looks like the rear derailleur has been upgraded to a suntour. As long as you can get it for around $100 or less, you'll be fine.

Thanks very much. The seller is asking 100, so he seems to be in the right ballpark.

Assuming that the wheels on that Trek you might pick up for parts are any good, you could swap them to this bike and improve its handling (aluminum rims over steel). The wheels will be 126 not 120 but it's easy to spread the rear triangle; you'll also have to see if the brakes will work with 700c wheels but they probably will.

I hadn't thought of that! Now I just need to explain to my wife why there are two more bikes around, as they would be the third and fourth bike of the past two weeks.

Thinking 1971 here as this is the final year for no NERVAR chainguard and the first year for this model of Juy shift lever set.

The photographs make this appear to be a 54-56cm frame. Depending upon your inseam, the frame might be small for you.

This looks like a nice example of an early 1970s bike boom import, entry level 10 speed.

UO-8's -- at least the ones sold in the U.S. -- came in 19.5", 21", 22", and 24" sizes. Comparing this one to my own 21", I'm pretty sure it's a 22" (~56cm) frame.

It's helpful to be aware that UO-8's, like some other French bikes, tend to have proportionally long top tubes. I'm just shy of 5'10" and normally ride 54cm/21" frames. My 21" UO-8 is the longest bike I feel comfortable on, with a top tube just under 57 cm. I'd expect a 22" UO-8 to fit most 5'11" guys.
