Looks like a pretty nice engine, no plier marks and would clean up nice. I'd guess and say it was attached to a TD-3 at one time as firewall is still there. The glowplug is also original type.

The firewall looks like that from a TD-3.
The prop looks like the Li'l Rocket:

i know K&B sold those stamped aluminum props, but i wonder if they actually made them or were they made by another company, they seemed pretty common in the early/mid 50's?

The L'il Rocket Mud linked to looks to be just free tethered.  

No sign of any controls.  Must be either 'round the pole or single line thether, which would make standing in the circle spinning around for nothing really boring.

I think Guillow's 500 series planes had an illustration for a similar setup with a Tee Dee .010.
