Can anyone ID which kit these 1/25 scale parts came from? I'm guessing they are from a '70 Mustang, but they don't appear to be from the Revell "Boss Mustang" F/C kit, and I can't find an MPC kit which looks similar, either. I don't think JO-HAN released a '70 kit, either, so I'm stuck.

MPC did release a 1970 bodied funny car, the Conrad Kalitta "Bounty Hunter".  Kalitta's car was dark blue, and those do look like MPC parts (particularly the interior).  MPC started putting grille and taillight filler pieces in around that time, to make the assembled body look more like a fiberglass unit.  The Revell funny car was based on their coupe body.  AMT also made a '70 funny car ("Mach Won") but the interior parts are different.  AMT's was molded in both white and yellow.

Thank you, Mark. I think the parts are most likely from that/this kit:
