It appears to be one of the bikes sold by the Holiday store chain in the 50? 60? Holiday stores are in the upper mid-west and now-a-days are large gas station convenience stores. But in the old days a lot of them used to be the only store for miles around, so they sold everything and anything people might need (gas, hardware, ammo, etc.) Like a general store.

Anyway Iím guessing your bike was made by one of the bigger manufactures(Murry, Huffy, Schwinn, etc) and Holiday just put their name on it. Here is a bike that looks like the menís version of your bike, that apparently sold a few years ago in Minneapolis for $175:

Note in general vintage womenís bikes (step through frames) sell for less than the standard frame counterpart.

Don't get your hopes up. That may be list price. No one knows what the transaction value was. Around Michigan, similar cruisers are a $50-$75 bike tops.

Well here is a bike that looks like yours:

https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/huffy-holiday-24-bicycle-womans-blue-220902563

…except the painting on the chain guard is different. The internet seems to think these bikes were built by Huffy:

https://host2.ministrycrm.com/~ratrodbi/forum/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=67102&p=646452

The last link says the serial number should be on the left rear drop-out (where the rear wheel axil bolts to the frame) and the first number tells the year (serial number starts with a 3 = 1963, starts with a 5 =1965. etc.)

Unfortunately that is too often the case here. But alas most vintage bikes only have value as transportation.

I have a few questions though. What size are those wheels and are the semi pneumatic? (do they actually take air?)
