the Dune Buggy Archives


The following buggies were produced by Dean Jeffries at Jeffries Automotive Styling in Hollywood California.

1968 Jeffries Mantaray II Kyote

1970 Kyote 1

Late 1970/72 Kyote II

The Irwin Boat co in Toronto Ontario had a franchise license to produce the 68 Mantaray II Kyote. It was sold under the name Irwin Sportster. This accounts for the higher numbers of Mantaray II Kyotes than the 150 that Jeffries made. Jeffries redesigned his mould in late 69/70 due to headlight clearance issues where Irwin did not.
