A long time ago, somewhere around the 1950s I ran across the Convair NX-2 and the Lockheed NX-1. At the time my experience was insufficient to take note of the reference and since then I have never been able to find a reference to the Lockheed NX-1. I know this does not identify what Steve is looking for, but it is another hint of search direction.

MX-1626 = very early B-58 studies

Assuming MX-1627 is roughly contemporary, we are probably looking at L-212 and the followon L-225. L-212 is specifically described as low altitude. It has very small wings.
