  • He's Cooter Davenport!

    Ben Jones was the perfect person to play Cooter Davenport in the TV hit series "The Dukes of Hazzard." Even though there were quite a few episodes without him he still was a part of what made the show what it is today. He played a major role in the TV show. He was not only the best mechanic in Hazzard, he was the best mechanic in the whole world.

He was so close with the family that you could almost consider him a Duke too.moreless
