Raleigh Gran Sport

While cleaning out my recently deceased grandmother's house I came across a Raleigh Gran Sport that must have belonged to my grandfather. It is a burgundy/maroon colored road bike with Dia-Compe brakes and Suntour gears. The handle bars and petal reflectors are made by Sakae. My grandfather is dead as well and he must have left the bike there when they divorced in the late 70's. I was hoping someone could help me identify exactly what year and model this bike might be (if they made different types of Gran Sports). I am also curious as to what it may be worth. It looks like he almost never used it. It's just covered in dust.

You need to post pictures. The Japanese components you mentioned doesn't jive with a '70s Gran sport. The year can be determined from the serial number using this website. https://www.sheldonbrown.com/retroraleighs/dating.html
