1966 Pontiac GTO “Monkeemobile” “The Monkees” (1966–1968)
“Hey hey, we’re the Monkees!” announced the theme song from the 1960s musical comedy classic. Created as an American challenger to the popularity of Britain’s Beatles, the Monkees TV show was a hit with American teens. The show centered around four bandmates — Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz — trying to make it big in the music business and craziness ensues with every episode, much to their dismay. The Monkees often cruised around in a highly modified 1966 Pontiac GTO designed by Dean Jeffries. The car features a big engine with blower, three rows of seats, a touring-car style convertible roof, and a parachute out back. With the recent passing of Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz is the last surviving member of the Monkees. Nesmith died at his home in California on December 10, 2021.
