1964-65 Murray-built ladies' Spaceliner/Flightliner. Similar bikes produced for Sears prior to 1964 were branded JC Higgins. Originally came with a tank light.

Looks like a very good condition bike.
With the 469100 number, it doesn't match the list on this thread I found on the CABE, but there's a lot of info on Spaceliners. It matches up with the 46950 model.

That's all I found as well...maybe I'll try my login and check over there. Condition is pretty nice, apparently the tank&light are missing, but overall is in great shape,

I'd say that's it, from 62. I was focusing on just the spaceliners, but it's clearly a fully equipped flightliner.
If those are the original tires (probably) there's a date code on those Allstate tires, according to the page I referenced from the Cabe.

You can also rotate the mounting bracket forward on the seat to get 3 inches closer.

Honestly..since I got back into bikes (since being a kid) I've always flipped them (it started with a motorized boardtracker) and cant recall how any other way
