11. The Monkeemobile
In the mid-60s, some of the top L.A.-based music producers organized a group of young musicians under the name, The Monkees. They invested heavily in the production, marketing and promotion of the new group. They wanted The Monkees to be the answer to The Beatles’ invasion of the U.S. Soon, the band proved to be immensely popular among teenagers.
One way to attract more attention was to have the members of the band drive a custom car for promotional purposes. So, Dean Jefferies, a famous Hollywood customizer turned two 1966 Pontiac GTOs into crazy-looking Monkeemobiles. The Monkees used their custom cars for various videos and shows. Both cars were fully-functional with supercharged engines that still survive today.
