Car customizer, engineer and stunt driver Dean Jeffries died in his sleep recently at the age of 80.
Die hards will recognize both his name and his cars.Â Dean might not have had the greatest publicist, Â but he was a renaissance man when it came to cars.
Of course his customs done for Hollywood are instantly recognizable.Â The Monkeemobile, the Green Hornet and the Beach Boyâ€™s cover car from their Little Deuce Coupe album were all his handiwork.
He started out as a painter- striper and worked with Von Dutch.Â He added the script to James Deanâ€™s Porsche Spyder â€“ Little Bastard.Â He moved over to George Barrisâ€™s shop and honed his metal working skills.Â He painted the first Shelby Cobra for Carroll Shelby.
