YAK Car Pic of the Day

Mention the old tv series The Munsters, and the first vehicle likely to come to mind was Herman’s Munster Koach, specially built for the show by famous customizer George Barris. But, being an old 60s’ series, there were always a lot of interesting vehicles in the background. And in a never-ending quest to bring you the more unusual stuff, here’s a 1955 Dodge mail truck, from Episode 28 of the first season, titled “Movie Star Munster,” which first aired April 1, 1965. Postal vehicles weren’t built by Chrysler, but were bodied by an Ohio company called Fageol, parts of which went on to build Twin Coach buses and Peterbilt trucks.
