Munster's Koach Stretched Limo 

 

Note:

  • George Barris used 4 Model Ts to build the original Munster's Koach - I used 4 Chevies - 3 '56s and a '57.
  • Used engine, lanterns, radiator, and horn from the Munster's kit. Added Curtains. Painted Black and yellow to match the original car.
  • Spot was the family pet dragon who lived in the basement below the stairs. He was only seen in 3 episodes. I used the dragon from the Monogram kit and moved the tail so he could sit back.
