We analyze a generalization of the quantum Calogero model with the underlying conformal symmetry, paying special attention to the two-body model deformation. Owing to the underlying SU(1,1) symmetry, we find that the analytic solutions of this model can be described within the scope of the Bargmann representation analysis, and we investigate its dynamical structure by constructing the corresponding Fock space realization. The analysis from the standpoint of supersymmetric quantum mechanics (SUSYQM), when applied to this problem, reveals that the model is also shape invariant. For a certain range of the system parameters, the two-body generalization of the Calogero model is shown to admit a one-parameter family of self-adjoint extensions, leading to inequivalent quantizations of the system.
