It is a Winchester Model 70 post '64 design.

The Model 53 Ted Williams is listed in the Gun Digest from 1966 through 1973 although there were fewer choices in the '73 edition (published in '72) and they were probably just selling off stock on hand.

Winchester changed the action again in 1968, and I would assume they sold Sears the current model. I don't remember whether the anti-bind feature was a groove in the bolt locking lug running on a rib in the receiver or a rib on the bolt running in a groove in the receiver, but if it is a post-68 there will be some added machining on one locking lug.
