Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

No real chance. If you don't have a brand name from a head-badge or an engraving in the frame itself, we need pictures of the bike to see if we can determine a maker. Then SOME makers/fans have posted serial number lists by brand.

Spend less time looking at the serial number, and more time looking at construction details.
Exactly. And boy are there a lot of details to look at on this heavily modified creation. Frame is likely not Schwinn due to lack of fillet brazing.
Maybe we could get a date of manufacture off one of the ammo cans and work backward from there? Sheesh. Even the seat cluster is gone!
If that is a genuine "Whizzer" engine you may have something valuable, likely the only valuable thing on this military-themed-wannabe.
And IF it is a Huffy-made bike it MIGHT be a 1959, but without knowing if it is a Huffy I can't say for sure.
