I Love Old TV Cars

The Munster Koach is the family car that was used in the television series, The Munsters. Only one official Koach was made for the television series and feature film. It was made from three Ford Model T bodies and is 18 feet long. The 133-inch frame was made by hand, as were the brass radiator and fenders. It has blood red interior and black pearl paint. It took 500 hours to hand form the ornate rolled steel scrollwork. The front end had a dropped axle, split radius rods and T springs. Its design featured a custom hearse body. The engine was a 289 cubic-inch Ford V8. Originally configured for installation in an AC Cobra, it was built with Jahns high compression pistons, 10 chrome plated Hudson Jet carburetors, an Isky cam, and had a set of Bobby Barr racing headers. It had a three speed toploader manual transmission (Paul Bull, Facebook Car Show).
