Attached are some pictures of the set and hardware (the 12" and 13" toms I have already stripped hardware and wrap to begin restoration)
I have this kit in "Woodfiberglass" with a silver wrap, otherwise the exact same kit. I'm currently in the process of restoring some of its former glory with some new silver sparkle wrap and a general de-rusting and polish.
These aren't the best pics, but they do show its old personality. Like you I only have a vague idea of the vintage, but all the hardware is identical to yours. I would hazard a guess and say 1977-79?

If it's anything like mine I think you'll find it's a very nice kit to play, so have fun cleaning it up. Definitely worth it!
