Dave's comments:

One of Barris' most famous creations. As seen the the TV series. This kit and the original Dragula were "complete" kits with interior paint, brush and glue. The Koach was reissued by AMT in 1999. while both it and the Dragula were released in the same box in the Blueprinter series in 1989. Take a look at this site which tells some facts and has many pictures of this most famous TV car.
