Muntz Jet restyled by Barris Kustoms for Anthony Heinsbergen of Los Angeles, California. In 1952, the well known interior decorator visited the annual Los Angeles Motorama. While being here, a gold custom snakeskintrimmed Muntz caught his eye. Anthony decided that his ideas should be extended to the road, he ended up buying the car for $5700. He delivered it to Barris Kustoms where he instructed them what to do with his Muntz. The headlights were raised and extended about 6 inches and was fitted with 1922 Marmon headlight rims. A new custom tube grille was made and a rear-end treatment that smooth of the clean Muntz body. Faux Wire Wheels and a black convertible top were added. The car was fit with six exhaust pipes. Once the body was complete, the car was painted gold. Elliot Wiener upholstered the luggage with snake skin.
