My hubby had one when he was a kid (he's 61 today) and his was purple. Cool bike!

Good find! It does look like an F-1 Murray Eliminator. The F-1 is for the F Series frame, single speed. Murray frames have serial numbers that will tell you which model they are, so if you find the serial number on the non-drive side rear dropout and post it, I think I can decode it for you.

I *think* because that one doesn't start with M and then a number, for a Murray badged bike, and doesn't start with WG, with would be a Hiawatha badged bike, that this may have been a JC Penney badged Murray Eliminator, possibly Swinger I. Someone will know more than I do and post it I'm sure.

What does the area where the head badge would have been look like? Is there a shadow from the badge there?

I looked at the bike pictures again, and the grips may give the badge of the bike away. Those look like the Penneys grips with the P on them, do they have that logo on the top?

Here is one similar I cleaned up and restored back when I was helping the local bike charity. It was an Otasco-sold version. Can't recall where it went but we sold it on Ebay for a very fair price.
