We’ve featured this authentic Monkeemobile from the 1960s television show before. Local collector Mel Gutherie bought it at auction from George Barris, who had acquired the Dean Jeffries built car, and restored it in a restomod fashion. It’s the second of two cars that Jeffries built for The Monkees’ producer, Bert Schneider and though it was intended to be used primarily as a show car for personal appearances with the band and at car shows, it ended up being used on the show in the second season. Gutherie brought it to the Ford Product Development Center employees’ car show last summer, sitting next to an authentic Dukes of Hazzard “General Lee” Dodge Charger.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
