According to a sign next to the shark, it was used as a prop in the 1975 movie Jaws. The Ice Cream Cowboy is a modern-day Muffler Man imitation, almost as scary as the shark.

Giant fiberglass shark - As seen in "Jaws"

When my sister and I were driving to Chincoteague Island from Ocean City, Maryland this past summer we stopped at a ice cream parlor / gift shop for refreshment. They had a school-bus sized fiberglass shark sitting out on the front lawn. According to the sign in front, this is "Bruce" one of the props used in the movie 'Jaws'. A small rowboat is positioned in front of the shark's gaping mouth, the better to stage a picture.
