Classic Car- The Munsters Koach
This Friday let’s take a drive back to 1964 with our favorite spooky family, The Munsters. Today’s classic car is the famous Munsters Koach.
The Koach was made from 3 Model T bodies and is 18 feet long. The 133″ frame was made by hand. It has a four speed manual transmission and a power rear end. The brass radiator and fenders were hand formed. In 1964, the cost to build the first one was $18,000.00. It had “blood red” velvet interior. It took 500 hours to hand form the ornate rolled steel scrollwork. It had Gloss Black Pearl paint. The front end had a dropped axle, split radius rods and T springs. The studio gave George Barris 21 days to complete the car. There are 2 Barris Koach’s.”
