Though he passed away in 2013, Dean Jeffries is still remembered as one of the most legendary names in the custom car and hotrod scene. The Iowa native was a pioneering figure in the custom paint and pin-striping world, famously painting numerous Indy cars, as well as James Dean’s iconic “Little Bastard” Porsche 550 Spyder. On top of also being a seasoned stuntman, Jeffries designed and built one-off movie cars including the Black Beauty from The Green Hornet, the moon buggy from Diamonds Are Forever, and the five vehicles from 1975’s Death Race, just to name a few. In his downtime, Jeffries would churn out his own custom car builds, including this absolutely stunning 1956 Porsche 356A GS Carrera Coupe.

After acquiring the vehicle in 1957, Jeffries treated the Porsche to bespoke bodywork with flared fenders, recessed lighting, bespoke roof vents inspired by the 300SL Gullwing, one-off rear grille, and an Abarth-inspired nose. Also bestowed with a bespoke interior clad in goat-skin, the car featured an engine built-out to RS-spec with a 1.6L, DOHC flat-four which has since been restored by ex-F1 mechanics as part of the elite vehicle’s eight-year restoration. This prestigious 356 is currently for sale on Petrolicious with an asking price of $765,000.

Purchase: $765,000
