You Could Own a Screen-Used DUKES OF HAZZARD General Lee...

Written by

There's a lot of General Lees out there, but few can lay claim to have actually be a part of the original Dukes of Hazzard series that ran on CBS from 1979-1985. From the crew over at the Volo Auto Museum comes news that one of the original 17 cars that were released by Warner Bros. back in 1991 has come up for sale. It's located in California, and is the last remaining 1969 Dodge Charger 440 R/T that was used in the show and has had only minor restoration. Since it's use in the television series, it's been owned by own buyer for the past 28 years and is the car that was used in the recent AutoTrader commercial in addition to making appearances on Showtime's Weeds and in an episode of Hollywood Treasures - appropriately being used to demonstrate how to tell if a General Lee is "real" or not. This one has been autographed by John Schneider and Tom Wopat, and is fully documented.

Considered to be a "Holy Grail" for Dukes collectors, this car is listed at $225,000 and can be seen by appointment. Check out the Volo Cars website to learn more about this awesome piece of automotive pop culture history! This is the actual car...

Along with K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the General Lee is one of the few Hollywood rides that I've ever given serious consideration to owning.
