Weird 1975 AMF “Sunfish”...

Trying to figure out exactly what this is: HIN # AMF25631M75B, all-white hull w/rolled deck edge like 1988-1992 Sunfish, no graphics, 13’9” LOA, metal DePersia bailer, molded-in splashrail (like Minifish), molded-in cockpit w/out storage compartment, Teak grab rails (same as on a Sailfish), on either side of cockpit well, mounted horizontally (like a Laser)..,
It has all Sunfish std. equipment including spring-loaded rudder, 2nd tapered style (narrow), daggerboard, original spars and white sail w/Sunfish logo.
I’ve never seen a true Sunfish that has these anomalous features... It’s like a prototype full-size version of a Minifish, or a bastardized version of a Pearson Sunfish, but w/out the storage compartment or separate splashrail - what IS this thing?!?
I can’t figure out how to include the photos I was sent, but the ad is on FB/GA...
Any pertinent info to help solve this mystery would be much appreciated!
Thanks
