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.
