I was more interested in the Sky-Pal, but there is nothing about it in my-search-engine-of-choice. The Flymobile has two references. One is just the picture. The other says

Yet it appears in Trailer News in an ad. Wikipedia lists it as an unbuilt two-seat monoplane. I like the Indian motorcycle fenders.
Found using search phrase "Curtiss Wright pusher twin boom". See post #50 in link below.

Curtis Wright 21 [NX37601]

CW-21 aka 21 1947 = 4pCmwM; 125hp Lycoming O-290 pusher. Podlike fuselage with twin booms and twin tails; tricycle gear. POP: 1 [NX37601].
I agree, very nice but perhaps had cooling issues? Just a guess, have not researched but could have been a military design looking for new life in civilian world as Sky-Pal.

Curtis not Curtiss, see link different company.

More cool pushers in link below.

Only currently known source of Curtis, just above Custer.
