Hmmm, here's an Air-way 66 with the same bizarre (over-engineered) dolly-cart that came with my 77 [see link].

Other than color, the cart appears to be identical to mine. So this may be an Air-Way product after all. I had wondered -- thinking as kludgy as it is, it's surely a bojack product. But maybe not.....

I do like the way it raises the machine up into the air at an angle, as if it's about to launch into outer space! That look is particularly dramatic with the more streamlined "nose cone" of the 77.

I think that may be bojack but im not sure,The 77 had one but it had clear wheels and looked different,than what you show,the one I have seen says Air Way on the front,but this MAY on the other hand be a rare AW product!!??

I have one

I have the same green dolly on my AW 77. same red wheels too. It might be Air Way. The red wheels do match the red ring on the nose cone.

Air-Way with funny cart

I remember seeing Air-Way 66's with that cart when I was small. They sold a ton of Air-Ways in the Indianapolis area. I remember them at a hotel when we had some friends from out of town visiting.
I assumed they were sold for commercial installations of the Air-Way.
They do resemble the 3 wheel arrangement of the later 88 Sanirizor.
The Air-Way carts are like the Rexair Rainbow chrome storage racks. You don't see them very often and they are a wonderful way to store the Rainbow and the basin and tools on the back of a door. Maybe there wasn't much profit or mark up in these asscesories. It also would point out how many parts theri are to store with the Rainbow.
It wasn't until I found the Vac Club that I even realized the Sanirizor could be used on it's side. My family never ever turned theirs on the side or removed the attacha carrier on their 66 or 88.
I remember when the Air-Way man came to demo the new 88 at our house,he came in the door with the attacha carrier mounted on the side of the 88 with the wheel sticking through the back of the carrier and that's the way it is today in her hall closet 45 years later. I had always wondered what that wheel was for at the top of the machine.

Air-Way 66 with funny cart

Did you notice in your picture of the 66 with the cart that is a later 66 in the model run. It has the small round step on switch and maroon plastic sofa tool. It imagine that machine also has the air diffuser on the bottom.
My parents and most of their friends had some of the first out model 66 Air-Ways with no air diffuser,the large step on switch and the metal sofa tool that matched the rug and floor tools and the maroon cardboard (not plastic) crevice tool.
Ours also had the black cord and black trim around the gliders but I have seen 66's with the matching blue cord and trim at the end of the gliders.
Just like the old Hoover 28 and the XXX Electrolux their were changes within the model run.
