With a lot more research, the input of another er (Thank you)and input of a old long time collector...(THANK YOU NEIL) We've come to the conclusion that this is a Dooling 'F' series car. According to a book: This car will accommodate most motors due to the heightened upper body style. I/we could not find anything on the 'Drone' motor.

On Jul-16-13 at 17:07:26 PDT, seller added the following information:

After the war, in April 1946, the Dooling brothers produced the "F" car.The "F" car is sixteen inches long with a two-piece die-cast magnesium body. Once again bevel gears were used to drive the rear axle. A separate, stamped aluminum Kurtis midget-type grille was riveted to the body top. Front axles were of two-piece cast aluminum knee-action design, supported by a bracket bolted to the belly pan. Rubber grommets surrounding the axles provided more support at the body openings. Cars from the factory came painted in many combinations of colors. Optional tires and a front axle could be had for rail racing. Price of the "F" car was $45, flywheel and universal included, but less engine.

There has been some speculation concerning the "F" designation. What does it mean? As of this writing, no one knows for sure. Could the letter "F," sixth in the alphabetand the sixth car in Dooling production, be coincidental? One interesting suggestion, from a Dooling descendant, stems from the fact that all three Dooling brothers had the same middle name—Fowler. Hence, the "F" nomenclature. Again, this is only speculation.

Another "F" car did, in fact, exist—a limited-production predecessor to the common magnesium car. This car looked similar to the later version but was different in many ways. An aluminum body with noticeable changes in cowl and belly pan and the lack of a cast-in seat set this car apart. These aluminum "F" cars are very rare today

More information as it comes in:
