Those are kinda known by the nickname "Squirrel Stock" rifles. The Squirrel is pressed into the wood and there are other designs as well, like an acorn, rabbit, etc. Back then, Marlin sold rifles under the Glenfield name in department stores, hardware stores, and even automotive chains.

I don't have a Glenfield, but I have a Marlin Model 60 from 1990. Mechanically it is just like yours except mine has a "last shot bolt hold open" which they introduced in 1985. It's a good reliable 50 yard plinker and it has a charm to it that my 10/22 just doesn't.
