Huffy Convertible Kids Bike

Hi-
I have a bike with me that is called a Huffy Convertible. It's in need of a total restoration but it does have potential. Does anyone know anything about them? there's one on ebay but it is a more modern version. The badge on the headtube says that this one was made by Huffman Bicycles in Dayton Ohio. I did some research and still I can't find that much info on it. Also, the serial number on the top tube seem to be eight digit. The numbers are 2H018091 if that helps. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Correction: I meant to say the serial number under the bottom bracket shell.

I have a girls version from the early 50's. Does yours still have the massive training wheels with the footpads?

No. This one doesn't but I saw an advertisement for it. I've been trying to figure this one out. The badge on the headtube is different from the one on the other Convertibles I seen on the web.
