Black Monroe Handler
Is this a Mad Max Interceptor Mustang? 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. For a mere $1250 you could get your own fiberglass body kit. This version wears a set of custom 18-inch KMC dime wheels with Nitti 555 R 275-40/18 tires.

Check out this stock looking 1978 Monroe Handler Mustang! This is an original one built using special body panels (which you could later order yourself) to promote the Monroe's Handler series street performance shock. This is one of the original 6 produced to be given away in contests back in 1978. The car only has 803 miles on the clock! The engine compartment has been modified. I want that storage building it's parked in!
