An unassuming craftsman, legendary car builder Dean Jeffries has always preferred to let his creations speak for themselves. This book provides a rare close-up look at the life and career of the man behind the Monkeymobile, Black Beauty from Green Hornet, the moon buggy in Diamonds are Forever, Carroll Shelby's Cobras, the Landmaster from Damnation Alley, and James Dean's Porsche 550 Spyder. Drawing on extensive interviews with Jeffries and featuring more than 200 images from his own collection, here is a book that finally shows some of the most famous vehicles of our time - hot rods, Indy cars, sports cars, TV and movie cars. Showing the range of his work, and his pioneering flame-painting and pin-striping artwork, with commentary on how different cars were approached, designed and built this is a must-have title for any custom car enthusiast.


"This new 192-page book by Tom Cotter gives a reasonably balanced view of Jeffries' varied and interesting life around cars, illustrated with fantastic photos from Jeffries own collection. It's a classic American success story, and another great addition to your Motorbooks collection." - Custom Car
