The Munsters, DRAG-U-LA original BARRIS Stickshift SHIFT KNOB Grandpa Munster THE MUNSTERS prop

original movie prop

Original stickshift ball from Grandpa Munsters' DRAG-U-LA, the well known dragster from THE MUNSTERS (1964-66). The shifter is THE original, right off the car, pictured here in an early "build" photo, and is entirely hand fabricated. The DRAG-U-LA was built by legendary Hollywood customizer GEORGE BARRIS, and this shifter was obtained from the former owner of the TV car who kept it as a souvenier. The Drag-u-la is currently owned by Planet Hollywood (except for this shifter!) and is in a very dilapidated condition.--------(courtesy Back Lot Charlie collection)

SEE THIS PROP IN ACTION ON THE YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOVE. When they show close-ups of Grandpa in the Dragula in the drag race, you can see this shiftknob to the left of the steering wheel.
