Excellent prewar parts bike . I would keep the triple step wheels with the
musselman hubs and the razor stem , handlebars , crank-set , pedals and chain adjuster screws .
Then recycle the rest

Unfortunately it looks like your hubs have too few holes to work with 26 inch wheels and your cranks and forks are too short, so there aren’t many parts to take from this bike. I’d swap the stem for a wald one, put some air in the tires and sell the bike as a complete project or yard art.
This bike is probably from between 1935 and 1940,
you shouldn’t throw it away and recycle it, someone out there would be very enthusiastic to have an entry level old bike like this. I have had a few prewar 24” girls bikes and I sold them for $80 each, one is a decoration inside a restaurant and one was fixed up as a father/son project.

7H number would indicate Huffman made, 7 is the second digit of the year, probably 47. The chain ring is definitely Huffman.

"Postwar serials starting sometime in 1947 begin with the last number of the year followed by “H” and usually six numbers Ex: 1947 (or 1957) = 7H052211."

Yours looks older than 57 with that skiptooth chainwheel. I would do like was recommended above, get it roadworthy and sell or keep it in case someone needs to ride a smaller bike.

Might be a 26” frame with the wrong wheels; the rear looks about 1” too small all around, cannot see front (too oblique of an angle).

The rear hub looks like a Musselman 1936 design patent 101,999 for the annular ribs.
I thought that they provided those mostly to Sears(?).

The front axle isn't in the forks, it's hanging lower than the tongs. With the matching rim all the away back in the dropouts I'd say it's a 24.

I think it's a keeper like it is. I would also try to see if the original paint is under there.
From the CABE, I found a catalog pic of a 47 Huffy:
