Can you identify this Bianchi?

Hi all, can anyone tell me what model of bianchi this could be from the picture? Sorry, it's off of the ad.
Supposedly 1970's era, $160... Owner says most of the lettering is gone, does have a little red lettering left behind on the frame. Does have campy components.

thanks!

Sorry that picture is too small to make out any detail. Looks like an entry level 70's model, maybe 1 or 2 from the bottom of the "10-speed" model line. Looks like there's no chrome on the lugs or rear stays, a big pie plate spoke protector, and a cottered crank, non of which would indicate a mid-range or high-end bike. If it has Campy components they are most likely Valentino derailleurs. Still if it's really clean (and I can't tell from that picture) it might well get $175 on eBay. Similar bikes are getting that now.

Ok, thanks. Sounds like most of the decals are wrecked on it and that makes me think it's not in primo shape for sure. Maybe I'll keep searching for something a little more racy.
