^What he said but I wouldn't push to hard, certainly still worth $75! I bet even that paint would polish up. What a fun project and desirable bike!

My money says the stem and seatpost are likely stuck. For $75, you could do worse. I'd try to get it for less.

I think they're faded and dirty and maybe photographed badly as well. There is a small chance they were anodized aftermarket. Shimano never made them in gold.

Great pic and good point as well. Older road racing bikes can handle rough stuff. Most of the racing bikes I’ve seen from the 70s and earlier can handle 32c or 35c tires. A few can handle 38c tires.
