Default Two Cylinder 92 Upright Rare Looking Engine

That sure is a neat looking engine! Definitely looks like an engineer one-off type engine. Anyone know the actual history of the engine and if others exist? I've seen one online in the past, unsure if it was this exact one and if it is a one-off engine or not. The carburetor looks a lot like a Briggs carb (I now see it is a Tillotson ML1B so a lot like a Briggs setup), opposite of what the Maytag carbs typically look like. Cool regardless.

From the Ad:
Asking $3500
Here`s something you don`t see every day, a vertical 2 cylinder Model 92 Maytag engine. The guy I bought it from bought it from the estate of a former Maytag engineer who was supposed to have designed this engine and had it built at Maytag. The cylinders fit the upper portion of the crankcase nicely, and the flywheel and ignition are identical to the 92 Maytag, except this one is a 2 cylinder, so I have no reason to not think it was built at Maytag, but I don`t know what the application might have been, possibly for their Maytag Racer toy car possibly. It has excellent compression and a point cleaning will bring the spark back, and it has no breaks, cracks, or repairs to it. It has a Tillotson ML1B carburetor with a modified automotive oil breather cover for an air filter. A super rare engine for the very serious Maytag collector!

That`s my engine, and I had it on here last summer after I bought it, looking to see if anyone knew any more about it than I was told. I bought it at the Brimfield, MA Antique Shows last July, they have something like 22 shows going on along the main road in town during the same week, you can usually find anything there. The dealer I bought this from was from out west, he had known the guy who had it, and the guy would never sell it, he was a retired engineer from Maytag, and he had this engine built there. Unfortunately the dealer didn`t know about any application for this engine, he heard about the guy passing on, and he either bought it at the estate auction or directly from his descendants, I forget which.
When I saw it in his booth, I just had to have it, and as a result I paid a lot for it also. I need some funds to finish a couple projects here, so I put a couple things up for sale. If nothing else, it`s an interesting piece to see!
