Sears Mod 53 (Win Mod 70)

I bought this Sears Model 53 # 185488; 30-06; blond stock; today for $250. I think it's a Winchester 70. I understand that Winchester made two versions of this rifle; one with a modified bolt and one identical to the Model 70. This one appears to be identical and is like new. Does anyone know anything about this rifle? Thanks!
