Roadster
Chassis #: M115
Television maker Earl 'Madman' Muntz got into the car business by buying Kurtis. He made a few changes to the car, lengthened the wheelbase three inches to accommodate four passengers and, in typical modest fashion, changed the name to his own. Previously all coupes, the 1952 model introduced the hardtop convertible. The cars were still powered by Cadillac V8's and manufactured in Glendale, California. The following year, Muntz moved production to Illinois.

This car is the 15th built by the Muntz car Company, and one of the 39 that were produced in Glendale, California, before production was relocated to Illinois. The car's initial design was done by Frank Kurtis, but Kurtis sold a license to Muntz to manufacture the cars. Muntz stretched the car's design to convert it from a two-seater to a four-seater. Early cars were powered by a Cadillac V8, although later cars received less expensive Lincoln side-valve V8s. Only about 400 cars were produced between 1951 and 1954. It is reputed that the first owner of this vehicle, chassis number M115, was actor Mickey Rooney.
