Curious about my grandpa's old bike...

Hello everybody, I'm brand new on here. Ok, here we go. I've had this bike for many years now and I've tried to do some research but it seems like this bike never existed. Here's what I know...my mom and uncle bought it for my grandfather as a bday gift in 1971. It's a Penguin Sebring, I believe they bought it at Montgomery Wards, super cool bike. I'd just like to know if anyone knows anything more about it and what it's worth. I tried to attach pics but it won't let me.

Never heard of a Penquin Sebring during the early 70's Montgomery Wards did sell a lot of Murray Sebrings which were mostly entry level 10 speeds.

FWIW, ANY bike sold by Monkey Wards is probably not worth much at all. They sold low-end bikes almost exclusively during their last 25-30 years in business.
