1923 Ford Munster Coach - #6778 Sold at $49,500
if you don't read through the catalog before arriving at one of these auctions, you can be in for some big surprises. After passing dozens of incredible muscle cars, an equal number of cool race cars, and several European sports cars, the sight of casket handles surrounding an engine lid can be a bit unnerving. Originally built for the Cars of the Stars museum in Buena Park, California, this particular shocker is 1 of 3 Munster Coaches ever built as the conveyance of choice for Herman and the gang. The car was built in the late 1960s on a hand-built frame. The body is made up of three separate Model T Fords. After sitting in storage for several years it was given a thorough makeover in early 2000. It was fitted with a new Chevy small block, new brakes and tires and repainted. It's a great car for a museum or car buff.
