What kind of Schwinn is this?

Don't remember ever seeing one like it with the curved top tube. Would like to find one some day but I'm saving for a new tandem right now and can't get this one. What is it?

Wellllll, it's a small, slightly fuzzy picture at an oblique angle, but it looks like one of the little 15 inch "camelback" frame Varsities. Looks like somebody has put a matress saddle and upright bars on it, but retailed the original dropbar brake levers.

Best,
TCs

The "camelback" Varsities were 17", but that was measured the Schwinn way (to the top of the seat tube) so they were closer to 16" c-t.
