Description Extremely Rare 1952 Muntz Jet Garage Find - Runs!


This is a once in a lifetime garage find.  There are only about 50 Muntz Jets still running.  We were told this car was actually featured in the 1958 Brussels World's Fair and bought right afterward by a Canadian soldier and shipped back home to Canada.   It was sold to another Canadian and has been in the same family until the time it was acquired from them....over 50 years.  I have restored one Muntz Jet before this one and know the cars very well.  This one is in fabulous overall original condition compared to my first one.  You can get in this Jet, turn the key on, push the starter button and the big, original Lincoln 217 cu in OHV engine fires right up.  It drives and has lots of power.  The exterior. My plans were strip it down to bare metal, do any corrective metal work and give it the best new paint possible. There is virtually no rust as you can see from the photo of the bottom side.  In fact, the family that owned it said to the best of their knowledge the car was never once parked out in the rain..  The original color of the car was an eggshell blue.  The black needs to go away.  The interior. You are seeing a 100% oriiginal interior leather upholstery. It needs a deep cleaning and proper leather treatment but ther are no tears or splits in it that I can see anyhwere.  The original radio is still in the console.  It comes on but won't pull in any AM stations, so it needs attention.   All the original gauges are there.  Everything is there...even the Muntz center floor mat with Earl Muntz' logo on it.  The engine.  Even though the big Lincoln still runs fine, my anticipation was to have it completely rebuilt and then reinstalled with the original hydromatic transmission...which still works fine.  Of course, the engine compartment needs to be stripped and repainted whatever body color is used on the car. The chrome is all original and in surprisingly excellent condition.  The vinyl top is relatively new and is flawless.  The back seat shows virtually no use and is quite comfortable, as are the originail front seats. I had to replace the rockers and floor pans in the 1953 Jet I restored but these seem to be in outstanding condition.  Look at the photo. The twin spotlights were probably a special order extra.  The Muntz Registry knew this car existed but had no data on it.  Now that the car has been found after over 50 years, the superbly kept Registry is being updated.  In summary, this would be a relatively simple restoration ...complete new paint, engine rebuild, and a deep and thorough cleaning of the interior plus all of the little things one would expect to deal with in a classic like this. I simply don't have the time to do another car at this point.  I am working on a 1950 Ford woodie.  Due to the extreme scarcity of Muntz Jets in this condition, we are looking to place it with someone who will respect it and restore it properly and correctly.  There is another Muntz, an extremely rare short wheel base version, listed on Hemmings now, so you can see the potential waiting for the right person with this spectacular, truly all original Muntz Road Jet.  Feel free to contact  me with any questions.  Please, no low-ballers, hustlers or flakes, just qualified, able, serious buyers, thank you
