...I want one, but does it come with an 8-Track player or a pair of "Go Gulf!" magnetic horseshoes for the trunk?

Just a artistic interpretation of a MMU unit could look like...

Not exactly. The USAF Museum in Dayton has one of these on display (the Marquardt space sled). It was a real effort that produced actual hardware (that did not fly in space). As memory serves, it was a Gemini-era program to provide an alternative to the MMU developed for Gemini, something with more capacity and presumably easier to pilot.
