Possible Huffy manufacture.

Murray dropouts are not rear-facing, but starting the late 50s they had a point in the rear dropout that points rear.
My eye was drawn immediately to the shape of the rims. Those look totally Murray to me. I admit that I would not want to bet the rent... wish I could see some details, the dropouts and the chainwheel more clearly. The chainwheel is not the one I would have expected. The handlebars are wrong, but the saddle looks right. Is the top bar of the frame two small-diameter tubes?

Why do you say Murray?
