The producers of The Dukes of Hazzard television show went through over 300 1969 Dodge Chargers over the course of the series. Many of the stunt cars, like the ones used for the series’ famous car jumps, were one and done, used for a single stunt or scene, and then too damaged to be repaired, That explains why they used hundreds. This particular car, owned by a Detroit area MOPAR enthusiast, is an authentic General Lee. However it was not abused. That’s because it’s the “hero car”, the car used when filming scenes with the actors. It’s been autographed by just about everyone in the cast and crew of the show and wears GENLEE1 license plates.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
