Wore out three sets of tires already!

I picked up this Sears Elgin at a swap meet today. The price was right so I had to pick it up. My original thought was to turn it into yard art and sell it, but I may be able to save it. It had a 24" rear wheel and a rusted chain stuck to it, also the forks were stuck at 90°. I was able to free the stuck wheel and forks. Now for the rest. The crank and seat post are pretty well stuck. I will just keep using more penetrating oil and keep my fingers crossed.
The serial number is
4278
MOS-K
MOD-502 215.
Any help on the year would be appreciated.
Thanks, Shawn M.

You have a '46. 'MOD 502' is a 'Murray built for Sears' code, 215 is the model #. Note that Elgins and JC Higgins have an extra S for Sears, in the date code, not shown in the above list.

Thank you for the help. From the Murray serial numbers I thought a '52 but the rear drop outs looked much earlier.
