Help figuring out my Schwinn bike model and value.

I own a Schwinn road bike that I was given to a while ago. I was looking to selling it and buying a new road bike. Problem is I don't know what model my bike is or what it's worth. I attached 3 images of the bike.
Any help?

Thanks!

Looks like a Varsity with a replacement front wheel to me. Value as id $50 - $75, bit that is highly dependent on location. If you clean it up it may be worth more, but not so much as to spending any cash on it.

Appears to be a Schwinn Varsity from the 1970's. Missing its decals and badly weathered. Needs $150 to $200 in labor and parts to be rideable. Probably worth $25 to $50 as-is.

I am not seeing anything that would need to be done to make the bike "rideable" but you can't really tell from 3 pictures. Fill the tires, lube the chain and post on CR for 75 and see if you get any bites. Also, take better pictures first.

Thank you all for your responses. I had no idea or information on what the value is of the bike. I will definitely try to clean it up a bit and for sure would take better pictures before I post it.
Your responses help me with a better idea now, thank you!
