Fenton Super Shark wheels

Recommended Posts

Is there an resin aftermarket source or a older kit that might have had these wheels as a option?

Several years of MPC full-size 60s-70s Chevys had something similar. The center caps are blank though. Not sure what wheel they were trying to simulate.

They're actually supposed to be Cragar G/Ts. They're in some MPC Mopar annuals from about '68/'69

BUT, I think they're about as close to Sharks as you're gonna get short of having them custom printed.

 

BTW, the wheels in the MPC late '60s Impalas, though looking the same strait on, are actually dished, not raised like the Sharks and Cragars. The ones in the '70s Impalas were actually Cragar S/S.

These are from Scenes Unlimited. They're copies of the Cragar G/Ts from the MPC Mopar kits I mentioned above.

I know, but, in scale, they are pretty close.

I agree ,, Like I said, Probably the closest he'll get without having a set of Sharks custom printed.

Thanks for the info guys.I think the ones in the 1st issue Monogram GT-350 kit are closer to what I need.I didn’t realize Scenes Unlimited made resin Crager G/T wheels.I actually need them for another build.Thanks again.
