Allan withdrew from Lockheed in 1932, so if anything happened with this it is not a Lockheed corporation design.

The layout is clearly related to the Lockheed Brothers Aircraft Corporation Duo-Four/Duo-Six, and
later Alcor Aircraft Corporation Alcor C-6-1, both companies started by Allan Loughead/Lockheed,
the former with his brother Malcolm in 1930, the latter in 1937.
Alcor comes from Allan Lockheed Corporation.
So, yes, it is a Lockheed design, just not one from the Lockheed Aircraft Company. ::)

The two pictures are of different aircraft.

The first has a shoulder mounted wing and the second a mid level wing. Did they rebuild it?
