Vehicle Description

History and Restoration

The Muntz Jet, originally designed by Earl “Madman” Muntz, is a beautifully restored convertible that started as a project to innovate beyond the traditional designs of the era. Acquiring the Kurtis automaker for $200,000, Muntz added unique features like a rear seat and extended the wheelbase, initially adapting it with a powerful Cadillac engine, later replaced by a Lincoln V8 to meet financial and design needs. Despite its impressive design and performance tweaks, sales were not as successful as anticipated.
