What Wiki says about the Cowboy:

Cowboy
AMC Cowboy concept pickup truck

In the early 1970s, AMC was planning a compact coupé utility (pickup) based on the Hornet to compete with the increasing sales of Japanese compact pickup models.[84] A prototype called the Cowboy was developed under the leadership of Jim Alexander.[85] The prototype vehicle featured a modified AMC Gremlin front design and a cargo box with a Jeep logo on the tailgate. The standard I6 engine would be more powerful than the 4-cylinders found in the imported pickups. The only surviving prototype was built using a 1971 Hornet SC360 with the 360 V8 and 4-speed manual transmission. It was used by AMC on their proving grounds for several years before being sold to an employee, who later installed a 1973 Hornet updated front end.[85] However, with the increasing sales of the Hornet models, and the 1970 acquisition of Jeep and no 4WD option ready for the Cowboy (at the time ALL Jeeps were 4WD), AMC's product planners shelved the Cowboy truck program.[86] It is interesting to note that a 4WD system was developed and later used on the 1980 AMC Eagle, and the "uniframe" construction ("frame" rails under the truck bed made of folded sheet metal and incorporated into the cab structure as one piece) resurfaced for the 1985 Jeep Commanche pickup, based on the unit body XJ Cherokee.

I am not sure about that one. Here is a picture of the real ones. There is way too much wrong with the advertised one.

This one is the Hornet based one and is still shown at shows and maybe it was the red one to start with as I believe there was only one.

Go here to see the Gremlin/Hornet based one from 1970 and the Hornet one again.

I think those are pretty cool, and I wish I had the money for this kind of project, but I don't...

I would like to see what the VIN and Title History of it is too?

.... and the front grille is not a '73 as mentioned in the ad. It appears to be a poorly cobbled together '77 Gremlin or Hornet grille tacked on to earlier fenders where the side markers were integrated with the plastic grille.
