Dresden Files

The Munstermobile is the car the Winter Court provides Harry Dresden. It first appears in Cold Days.


The Munstermobile is an old Cadillac hearse, built sometime after WWII.[1]

It is painted a very dark blue and has an electric purple flame on it.[1] Harry Dresden thinks it looks like a "creepy Herman Munster[Footnote 1] hot rod".[2]

In the series[]

Cold Days[]

In Cold Days, Harry Dresden steps through the only portal in or out of Faerie and when he reaches Chicago the Munstermobile pulls up right in front of him, driven by Toot-Toot and the Za-Lord's Guard stacked on top of each other.[1]

A bomb later explodes in front of the car, wrecking it, but leaves it still drivable.[3] The car is then delivered to Molly Carpenter's apartment, after repair work by Mike Atagi and a full security sweep ordered by Etri.[4]

Peace Talks[]

In Peace Talks, Harry Dresden drives the Munstermobile out of Karrin Murphy's driveway when he discovers that Mab and Lara Raith are seated on its backseat. They inform him that Raith is owed three favors from the Winter Court, and that he's responsible for fulfilling two of them.[5]
