Munster Koach

 

 

The Munster Koach was the Munster’s family car. The show’s producers had contracted George Barris to see the concept come to life. Barris had employed the skills of Tom Daniel to design the concept while Tex Smith and Dick Dean worked on the build process. In the show’s two year run the Munster Koach made appearances in over 20 episodes and it quickly became a household icon amongst fans at the time.

There was only one Koach made for the entire television series as well as the Munster’s feature film. Fun fact, an unauthorized reproduction was created and presented to George Barris, but Barris declined to buy it. Eventually a second authorized Koach was built, again with the help of Dick Dean and Dean’s son.

The original was made from three Model T bodies and is 18 feet long, talk about land boats, here’s a yacht.

The powerplant features a 289ci Ford V8 originally configured for installation in an AC Cobra. The engine was built with Jahns high compression pistons, ten chrome plated Carter carbs, an Isky cam, and a set of Bobby Barr racing headers and featured a three speed manual transmission.
