the owner of this car was a member of the special effects crew that created the first five General Lee's. This car was painted with the same paint and stencils as were used on the original five General Lees used in the first episodes of the "Dukes of Hazzard" television premier. When we purchased the car it had a specially-padded driver's seat and no other interior seats. It also had a specially-marked odometer indicating where the driver should hold speed for drifting (presumably for film scenes). This car once had a full roll cage.
Correct Flame red paint (from the same paint bucket of the 1st five General Lees), stenciled flag and numbers (used for the first five Lees), Patina. Body work on a few rust spots as needed. Excellent floors (new one-piece replacement at factory welds), excellent newly replaced trunk floor, excellent rails!
all new !!
This car was started off from production as an H-code (High Performance) 383 car. Now the engine is a stock, compression-tested, steel crank 440 cu in engine, date code correct, has only 30,000 miles with a low mileage 727 Torqueflight Automatic Transmission (tranny numbers match the engine).
YEP ! THE REAL DEAL. This is a REAL General Lee!! Well-Documented. Before and After photos shown ! This car was built by the original stunt crew and film crew in Georgia who built the 1st five GLs in GA for the 1st five television episodes of "The Dukes of Hazzard". This car was never titled to Warner Brothers.
The car was restored in two stages. The first stage was to provide new floors (a 0ne-piece section was added) and new trunk pan.
The second stage (just completed) was to restore the Lee to running/driving condition and to finish it as it was in 1977. The General has a rebuilt 440cu in. engine, a 727 automatic transmission and brand new tan interior.
This car features its original wheels, original gauge cluster (with special marker for driver to maintain drifting speed), original paint with hand painted flag and numbers. She has lots of patina from her active days and is now a pleasure to drive and enjoy on your own dirt back roads or just rolling through town honking your Dixie horn. Yes...Dixie Horn and push bar included !
