It's called The Bastard.





It's not actually a pre-Tele Esquire neck, it's a '55. Pre-Tele (or Broadcaster) Esquires didn't have truss rods.* The Strat body and it's parts are mostly '62.
I'm unsure as to whether the question is as open/shut as it appears, but I guess they did a tiny bit of routing? Likely to the body.
Ian Moore has since had replicas of this guitar made (physically, not visually) with reissue/licensed parts.

Hidden: 



*During the Broadcaster R&D phase Leo Fender had all these big-band country guitarists pitching in... after they complained that it didn't have a truss rod, Leo once took one of those early all-rock-maple necks and laid it across the arms of a hotel chair, then climbed up onto the neck and stood on it with his full weight (he was a stout and pudgy fellow) saying "see, you don't need a truss rod! This baby will never break!"
The guitarists all said "yeah, now take it in the luggage compartment of a bus to a different climate, at which point it warps and you get dead frets and action problems."
Truss rod thankfully made it onto the final 2-pickup version. String trees also came to the design of Fender necks courtesy of those dudes' input.

Some strat bodies have "ears" in the neck pocket pocket that are said to allow installation of a Tele neck
