4 Monkees Drive Away in 1967 GTO And Create TV History

Back in the TV days of yesteryear a 1967 GTO was called upon to transport a group of Monkees and be the spokes car for a wacky group known as The Monkees.
Still popular today, The band and the car have an almost cult like following.
The Monkeemobile is a modified Pontiac GTO that was designed and built by designer Dean Jeffries for The Monkees, a pop-rock band and television program. The car features a tilted forward split two-piece windshield, a touring car convertible top, modified rear quarter panels and front fenders, exaggerated tail lamps, set of four bucket seats and an extra third row bench where there was originally a trunk, a rear-mounted parachute and a GTO emblem on the front grille.[wiki]
Two cars were contracted, one for the television program and the other as a promotional car, for touring car shows around the United States. Both cars would be built in the span of four weeks. The first version originally featured a 6-71 supercharged engine, a solid mounted rear axle (no springs) and extra rear end weight. This was to enable the car to “pop wheelies.” Because the car had too much power and was difficult to drive, the original blower set up was removed and a dummy blower was fitted. The second car was used as a touring car for auto shows and promotional events. Before its transformation into the Monkeemobile, the second car was first seen on TV as Major Nelson’s GTO in “I Dream of Jeannie”. Both were used on The Monkees TV series, one during the first season and both throughout the second season.[wiki]
