Sand Shark
Custom-Styled Show Rod

  • Original year: 1975
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Watch out for the Sand Shark! This mean monster is the most menacing machine you'll ever lay eyes on! That potent Pontiac mill with eight Webber carbs and ram tube injectors would bang out enough power to make this custom rod a winner on the quarter-mile, city street, or show rod circuit. And dig that comfy interior with contour seats, chrome "T" shift lever, and handle bar steering control, all protected by a sleek cleat plastic canopy. It's gotta be a perfect hauler for surf boards or scuba gear. But the biggies that add a different twist are the super Sand Shark decals and sinister-looking fins.

Dave's comments:

Tom Daniel creates the Sand Shark show rod in 1975. Steven Spielberg directs the movie "JAWS" in 1975. I suspect Spielberg was inspired by this TD creation and know the rest of the story. And TD gets none of the credit except here on the Show Rod Rally. This is a 1996 reissue. The pic on the right is from an Orlando vacation (Universal Studios) in 1998. Note that my younger daughter is NOT getting close to that thing. NO WAY DAD!
