Horn Toad
This Far Out Show Rod is a Mean Monster

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

One day a big toad hopped onto Tom Daniel's workshop. Tom put on his sorcerer's cloak, used his magic powers and turned it into the fastest, meanest looking show rod ever sleek it looks like it's ready to leap forward any moment. Riding on extra wide slicks and mags so deep they look like tunnels, it gets its GO from a potent Pontiac mill mounted at a cocky angle to show off the six-pak of Weber jogs and outa' sight finned and flared custom headers. The HORN's mind-bending!

Dave's comments:

The prototype design by Tom Daniel first appeared the the cover of Rod and Custom Magazine in the late 60s. A very sought-after kit. This '71 original was molded in green. The 1973 reissue was molded in yellow. Similar to Daniel's Dog Catcher.
