From within a thread on 12 O'Clock High!:

It´s a Fw-58

The second batch of Fw-58 built in Brasil by Brazilian Navy had that same single strut undercarriage. I guess it was a change for a more strong model than the previous one. The engines looks there I just think the angle from the photo do not allows to see them.
This machine may be a passanger version that has a slight different upper fuselage and side windows. It must have also the passanger door on left side, like all military ones built in Brasil.
You can compare the struts with the photo of the Brazilian preserved Fw-58 on Preserved Axis Aircrafts site.

Como vai o garotão?
