Munster’s Drag-u-la Car Built 1964 – Restored 2012: Episode 2
Recently a customer contacted White River with a unique project: assist in the restoration of the Munster's Drag-u-la car by building the coffin that gives the dragster its unique look. While many people may stop and say “is this possible?”, White River says “we can do it” and have it completed in 4 weeks.
It’s all in the details. Say “hello” to the “Green Man”. He is located front and center as the hood ornament. Restoration work on any project precise quality.
Custom radius hood and radius corners give the Dragula car nice features. The papyurus leaf is modified to fit the 4 corners of the Drag car.
This coffin will house both the driver and the engine so special consideration was taken to follow precise specifications as required by the owner. White River works with many special projects at our custom millwork shop, from beamed ceilings, radius mouldings, large moulding build-ups to custom cars and boats.
John Fairless is an avid collector of comic books, toys, movie memorabilia and artwork and owns The Great Escape, a collectibles company that specializes in high-end memorabilia. He has owned the Dragula for 8 years and is excited about finally restoring it. Once finished, he has plans to tour the country with the Dragula car doing Comic and Sci-Fi Conventions and displaying the car for the public to see. An extensive line of Munsters and related products will soon be availabe on his website – www.the-greatescape.com and via his large ebay store – Masteraddams Great Escape, where he specializes in unique and rare collectible items.
