    No. That is a custom molded bumper. The prototype was a made by combining a mark8 and cobra bumper. Other have made one-off custom bumpers by combining a mark8 and mustang bumpers. some have also made one-off customer cowl/scoop hoods. Paying someone to make a one-off will cost at least a $1000 unless you get a friend rate. The Temple bumper is the cheapest route and is a true single molded piece. I would question the longevity of the one-offs since they are usually pieced riveted, epoxied, and fillered together.

    Plus buying from temple supports John's business which in turn helps us keep these cars on the road.

    It does require a little trimming and tweaking to get it fit right but it worth it. Is your car a gen II?

    Temple is the only option for a custom off-the-shelf MArk8 bumper. He is (or was) a Mark8 owner. He has a car customizing business and made a variety of Gen2 custom parts out of self-interest and to make a few bucks. All f his stuff is good quality. Allot of his stuff was Gen2 specific so you are in luck.
