Wore out three sets of tires already!
That would be the Schwinn Approved that a lot of the 10 speeds used in those years, the Huret built one that looked like the Sprint Derailleur. I have a 1969 in parts and it had that derailleur, so did my 1968 Stik Shift 5 Speed and my 1968 Apple Krate.
I can send a photo if you need one.
Hope this helps, Rob

Not the nicest example but this is what you are looking for.
The Shimano GT100 took over in 1970 but none of my Krates ever had one. I saw a picture in a Stingray book of a 1971 Orange Krate with a GT100 but I do not think it is original. Most likely a dealer replacement.

Shawn,

Not that it matters, unless someone is doing a correct nut/bolt 5 Speed.
There are a few differences in the derailleur used from ‘66 - ‘73.

The ‘66 Fastbacks used the Sprint unit with smooth wheels.
The “Schwinn“ unit continued to use the smooth wheels into 1970 and maybe beyond.
The 72-73 used wheels with the teeth for better control of the chain.

My ‘70 Pea Picker with smooth wheels.
My ‘73 Sunset Orange with the tooth wheels.
