Questions about BF Goodrich Bicycle

I picked up a half-dozen bikes as a lot just before the weekend (the Mancini I posted a few days ago was one of them, and a nice old Carlton Raleigh with fancy lugs & Campagnolo Record hubs was another) and this old red bike was included with them.

The bike seems to be in very good condition and has no rust. Does anyone know how old this dinosaur is and if it might be of any interest to collectors ?

I think it's a 1950's bike. It might be of an interest but it look like it as house paint on it so it may have less value.

I suspect from the finish that the fenders were painted with a broom (but it is probably Tremclad so at least it has been protected) !!

Made by Arnold, Schwinn & Company for B.F. Goodrich in the 50s. Most likely a variant of the Schwinn D-13.
