The 1952 Muntz Jet, Customized By Joe Bailon
Band leader Freddie Martin bought a rare Muntz Jet back in 1952, and was more than happy with the style and performance. But a few years later, with the power revolution, he felt he and his car were being left behind. So he enlisted legendary customizer Joe Bailon to give his drop-top a facelift and power boost.
Joe added a tooth grill, played with the lines, and of course, swapped the engine by dropping in a new 1955 Cadillac powerplant, and the results speak for themselves. It's no longer a rare bird; it's a one-of-a-kind, with modern specs and classic styling!
