No, It's a 1978 Monroe Handler Mustang. It was a body kit featured in a June 1977 Hot Rod Magazine custom build to promote Monroe's Handler line of shock absorbers.

(from page 18 of the 1978 Collection) The inside of this car has lots of custom touches. I like the polished metal dash insert around the instruments.
