http://www.barris.com/gallery_dragula.htmlBarris.com Website said:A coffin on wheels built by George Barris for "Grandpa" of the 60's Munsters TV show. This dragster goes from 0 to over 180 mph in a matter of seconds with a parachute for brakes. An ornate Owens-Corning Fiberglass casket, trimmed in royal purple velvet silk and embodying a very lively 350 H.P. Ford Mustang engine with a 12 volt Autolite electrical system.
The exterior of the casket, which rests on a tube chassis has a quiet antique gold finish with sedate Italian gold leaf. Appropriately, the dragster accommodates one person. He is positioned in the rear of the dragster behind the engine and under a clear plastic bubble which allows greater speed through streamlining. At his command is a four on the floor speed shift which diverts the power of the 360 cubic inch engine to the rear wheels, 11 inch Firestone racing slicks mounted on specially made 10 inch deep Rader drag Reynolds aluminum wheels. Up front are imported Speedsport English buggy wire wheels with 4 inch Italian tires. The radiator is a casket in a casket solid brass by Radiator Dynamics, and the grille is a marble gravestone with the following inscription: Born 1367, Died ?
The Drag-u-la has dual 4 barrel carburetors with a Ram-thrust MT manifold and bat-shaped forced-air scoops. Gas is consumed at a rate of 4 gallons per mile of embalming fluid pushed by the high powered Dupree Chrome Dome electric fuel pump. Antique head and tail lights with solid silver spiders on the hub caps carry out the funeral motif. Spouting out of the side of the coffin almost like a cluster of flowers, is the engine Huth exhaust system ala metal organ tubes that are tuned.
