Anybody familiar with a show rod, custom, or showcar kit called the "Demon Vette?"

I just can't place it. Google search turned up zip.


TIA

I have a MPC kit called Demon Vette that is a combination of several years of Vettes all in one. It has clear glass that goes from where a sunroof would be, all the way down the back. It is packed up now or I could get some pics.

That's the early Eighties reissue of the Turbo Shark. The 1:1 Turbo Shark was built by Carl Casper in the late Sixties. I've got both kits but never had them side by side to figure out what changes were made. The Turbo Shark had Cragar S/S mag wheels, and the rear glass was tinted red. Besides the wheels and tires, the interior in the Demon 'Vette might be slightly different too. The Turbo Shark had the two-wheel tilt-bed trailer that came in the MPC Mako Shark (II), '68 Impalas, and '73-'76 Caprice kits, but the Demon 'Vette has no trailer. The Turbo Shark was molded in white styrene, the Demon 'Vette in black. There were only those two issues, no others. Some parts in these kits (basic engine and chassis) are shared with the MPC Mako Shark and its various descendants.

Mikelo, Keef, Mark:

Thanks for all the info, guys. I remember the Turbo Shark but just do not / did not recall the Demon Vette.

Seems like it might be a little easier to acquire than a Turbo Shark!
