Dean Jeffries – 50 Fabulous Years on Hot Rods, Racing & Film
Dean Jeffries – 50 Fabulous Years on Hot Rods, Racing & Film celebrates the work and life of one of the most unheralded yet talented car painters, designers, and builders of our time. A man whose accomplishments include designing the groundbreaking Mantaray the Monkeemobile, and the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty, along with fueling the dune buggy craze with the Kyote in the late 1960s. Through extensive interviews with Jeffries and those who worked closely with him (including rival George Barris), bestselling author Tom Cotter offers an unprecedented look at a legend who made his way to the top by first pinstriping and customizing hot rods in Southern California in the 1950s. Featuring 250 rar4e photos and drawing from Jeffries’ personal archive, this 192-page hardcover book beautifully illustrates the breadth of this career, working on everything from hot rods and Indy cars to sports cars, TV and movie cars, and more.
