Close, Larry. Its the last gasp of Eldon before becoming Cox Superscale.

This Cox "Superscale" McLaren M20 is from the last of the Eldon tooling dumped by company holder LDI onto Cox in 1972. The sister car to that was a Porsche 917 as ugly as that McLaren. Both are modeling abomination of the highest order. An insult to both Porsche and McLaren.
