It looks like an OE shock that someone has adapted, though why they bothered is beyond me as the original wasn`t that good, and it`s not even a preload adjuster.
There were very few aftermarket shocks available and none looked like that, especially with the remote adjuster.
The only one with a remote adjuster I can think of was a Wilbers and they were big bucks.

I did a similar bodge years ago....I had a Mercury Bobcat (posh Ford Pinto) and the front end was very underdamped, so I removed the shocks, drilled a hole in each to remove the oil, measured the volume, welded in a threaded insert, refilled with heavier oil, screwed in the plugs and it worked a treat :lol: .
