A 23" frame, 58cm, would be just a tad tall for you, but you wouldn't really know without riding it. You should be able to stand over the top tube with just a slight clearance. Without photos of the bike, it's probably not worth more than $100.

I agree with jj.

23" frame is too tall for you.

And the Traveler was pretty low-end. Just above the World/World Sport. Decent bike for basic transportation, kinda heavy. 700c means it's a later one, which is good.
