Welcome to the forum.
This almost certainly isn't factory. I would suggest home-made, although there were some companies that produced kits for making multi-cylinder Cox engines.

One qualifier though: It has to have one custom reverse rotation crankshaft in order to run. (possibly fabricated from an un-bored, unrelieved Pipe Bomb shaft.

Neat powerplant!
Counter-rotating shafts would be required if the two crankshafts touched each other. Not the case here (not trying to be belligerent):Wenmac boxer Img_2219

There was a company-FCS? FCP? (Flight Control Systems? Flight Control Products?) back in the late 60s early 70s that produced geared twins using a very similar if not identical arrangement-but using Cox reed valve 049s....this Wenmac might have been a)a developmental prototype or b) someone's attempt to produce a copy of the commercial offering....

You might be right Chris. There's an "F" and an "S" visible on the mount. Can't see a "C" inbetween due to the needle valve.
