The Original Munsters Drag-U-La races the Boot Hill Express!
Watch the Original Munsters Drag-U-La, race the Boot Hill Express, a Stage Coach Hearse at the Autoseum, Automotive Teaching Museum! The Drag-U-La is currently house at the Autoseum so we decided that it was time this dragster hit the streets, so we ask one of our local supporters to bring down his home built Boot Hill express so the coffin could still race a hearse. The Drag-U-La is the fully restored car built by George Barris and used by Grandpa Munster, Al Lewis, in the TV series The Munsters. This is the car most famous for the episode "Hot Rod Herman" where races the Munsters Coach. For more more videos and information on the Autoseum check out of Facebook page at Facebook.com/Autoseum.

Car Room TV: Clips! Round 2 "Munster Koach" and "Drag-U-La"
No red blooded American kid ever missed the end credits for each episode of "The Munsters" - or they'd miss George Barris' kustom "Munster Koach" as it hauled into view with the whole Munster family perched inside, and on the outlandish (and hysterically unsafe) high rear bench seat. Pairing the Koach with its equally kreepy "Drag-U-La" - literally a coffin on wheels - Round 2 has brought out two of the most famous cars in TV land.

Rat Rod Central
This year's World of Wheels at McCormick Place in late January had a great rat rod display, but the video had to wait until I found the right music. And it doesn't get much better than Mickey Gilley "Drive-In Movie" and Eddie Cochran "Somethin' Else". And to the guy behind me talking to his friend while I was shooting: They DIDN'T forget to paint them! And that's the main attitude that people who own or like rat rods have to put up with.

Neat for seeing it up close rides where by lottery $5.00 a ticket drawn 3 x today idle speed round fairgrounds owner could've at least rev'd the rpm's a little.......... ORIGINAL ONE WAS Designed and built by George Barris. 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. Powered by a 289 Ford Cobra engine from a 1966 Mustang GT. Built with Jahns high compression pistons, ten chrome plated Stromberg carburators, an Isky cam, and had a set of Bobby Barr racing headers.
