Official vehicle made for use in the motion picture production of The Dukes of Hazzard (2005)
Legendary Motorcar is proud to present the official 2005 motion picture "The Dukes of Hazzard" 1969 Dodge Charger. However most fans simply refer to the vehicle by its stage name "The General Lee." This is one of only a few 1969 Dodge Chargers that were used in the filming portion of the film. The VIN number as well as the certificate of authenticity issued by Warner Bros. Entertainment and Village Roadshow Pictures verifies this vehicles extensive involvement in the motion picture production.
The General Lee is truly an American Icon. In fact, this 1969 Dodge Charger could possibly hold the title of the most famous movie car of all time. Of course, there wasn't just one General Lee. Reportedly 28 orange Dodge Chargers were filmed for "The Dukes of Hazzard," however most of them never survived the stunt filled film. Others were cut open so that movie cameras could film from within. The end result is a very rare and awe inspiring vehicle that is sure to relive the adventures of Bo and Luke Duke eluding authorities and saving the family farm.
The General Lee used in the 2005 movie has features that were not found in the TV series. While the original series featured the factory steering wheel, the 2005 General Lee sports a Grant F/X wheel. In addition, rather than the simple factory radio player, the General Lee has been updated with a Verge VMP508 CD Player with MP3 support. Further uniqueness can be found with the shifter and tachometer, a B&M StarShifter and a Autometer 3904 shift light/tachometer were also added.
This vehicle comes with the official documentation verifying its authenticity with certificates, California title copy - registered under Warner Bros pictures, and photographs of the vehicle on set. As a bonus, the vehicle comes with 5 large mounted poster boards as well as the movie DVD, Digital Press Kit DVD and The Dukes of Hazzard XBOX game. This car is show ready and these accessories are the perfect touch to add to this legendary collector car.
The General Lee's legacy and influence continue to be a part of our pop culture. After all, this is a car that inspired millions of kids' dreams. Getting into a car "Dukes of Hazzard style" is still a recognized term for entering a car through the windows and "Daisy Dukes" still describe very short jeans shorts. After all, how many other cars have had Johnny Cash sing a song about them? This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most famous movie cars in existence.
