Dad's old camera

My wife was back home (we are from upstate NY, stationed in CT), and when she was there I had her grab my dad's old camera for me, the one I originally learned on.

It's a Yashica TL Electro X but I'm not sure the year (apparently their serial number system is a little confusing).  Can't wait to clean it up and go find some film and a battery to take some pictures.  It has a 50mm and an 80-200 but the mechanisms on the tele seem shot.  Also in the case is a telephoto adapter.  It's truly fully manual but was the first SLR to include a light meter in the VF.  It's simple, a light to tell you if you're exposure is correct, but it works.
