Davy Jones Personally Went To Mpc To See
In 1967 Your beloved Davy Jones visited the
Mpc factory, to see the finished Monkeemobile
model kit sh own here. Who was there? None other
then the designer, stylist and builder King of the
Stripers Dean Jeffries. He show Davy Jones the
famous Monkeemobile Mpc 1/25 Model kit. It
was made from The Monkeemobile #2 stunt car.
It was the small Davy Jones raced against his
foe played by Carol Shelby in his famous Shelby
Cobra Coupe that are worth $20,000,000,and
In 1971 George Barris Purchased The Monkee-
mobile #2,along with The Black Beauty #1 for $1,500
a piece. George ruin the design first when he stripped
the tires and mags, made debauched Monkees logo in
this ugly color. He added slotted mags, and Formula 1
tires. Then he had Dick Dean, who help build both sets
of cars, add this yellow orange between the grill shell,
also between the lights.
George Barris also had #3 Monkeemobile built by
having Dick Dean, use a 1966 Pontiac Catalina in-
stead of GTO. Dean Jeffries, never authorize this car
to be built.
In 1982 it was brought the custom car designers, it is
time to sell your cars. So George Barris did auction #2
Monkeemobile for $26,000,but the bidder never showed.
This why George Barris had #2 Monkeemobile so long.
However, In 2006 it was said, the designer was going to
to restore The Monkeemobile. But that was a lie. George
Barris owned The Monkeemobile #2.Which actually took
it back to Rancho Cordova, but they will say Sacramento,
because the County boundaries. I know that area, because
I finished high school there.
George Barris actually ruin Dean Jeffries design. He had
the four pipe headers on the side the blower, changer to three
like the original model kit of The Monkeemobile #2. He had
the interior white like the model kit, instead of tan. He had the
custom touring top changed from tan to white, then he had the
builders, paint the inside of the top black, with chrome bands.
The car, was no longer a red or burgundy color, but now it was
raspberry. The Gold The Monkeemobile logos were correct.
However, they ruined the rear bench seat. They had computer
video audio system, while it looked cool, they made it so you
could sit in the middle the rear bench seat. They added a white
parachute, and correct size, considering ,the car came with bias
tires, they added Bridgestone tires, the correct height on all fours.
They had the right Craigar SS Diamond Five Spokes with the
three prong knock offs. The car was toured that year, where
Micky Dolenz signed under the hood first. Then 2010 Your
Beloved Davy Jones Signed the car. I believe latter in 2012
Peter Tork signed the car.
I have a stand up picture of Davy Jones by The Monkee-
mobile #2. For you model collectors, they did bring out the
model of The Monkeemobile, in almost original box art. They
had removed The Monkees on top, but left you with the car
original box art.
I know Davy Jones lives on in our memories, but if you want
to show your support, please, go The Monkees Reunion Tour.
