Butch Patrick: Munster Car-Lover | ClassicCars.com Journal

Butch Patrick is one of those actors whose name you just know, even if you haven’t seen him on celluloid after his 1960s-era appearances. As the all-American Edward Wolfgang “Eddie” Munster from “The Munsters” TV show, Butch has been written in America’s consciousness, especially for GenXers who grew up with syndicated reruns. But, horror of horrors, did you know that Butch is a member of the tribe of automotive enthusiasts?

Born Patrick Alan Lilley, Butch took a liking to cars at the ripe age of seven thanks to the time spent antiquing with Grandma and her year-old 1959 Cadillac. Then, in 1962, Butch’s mother came home in a new Thunderbird, followed by a 1968 Cougar XR-7 — both cool vehicles for a kid at the time (if not an enthusiast today).
