1978 Raleigh Grand Prix

I found this 1978 Raleigh Grand Prix serial # NB8067603. It appears to have never been ridden. The tires hold air despite some dry rot. The Brooks saddle looks like it just came out of a box. Any idea on the value of this thing? How do you determine the frame size?

Raleigh used the seat tube length from the center of the crank to the top of the seat tube (where the seatpost is inserted) as the frame size.

I bought it for 16 year old Grandson to ide when he visits for July 4th week. I posted it on Craigslist and will sell after the holiday.
