You might find this link useful as it contains copies of catalogues for a good number of years.

Based solely on the serial number your bike is a 1971 model (seven digits plus the first one being a 1) however this dating method is wrong about 50% of the time. My initial assessment is that it's a lower-end model from the early 70's. Regardless, it's well worth cleaning-up as it will be a really nice bike and lovely to ride.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.
