The General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard

No doubt one of the coolest cars in television history is the General Lee (which many know is a 1969 Dodge Charger) from CBS' television series "The Dukes of Hazzard' seen here with car enthusiast the lovely Jennifer Smith.

This no doubt is one of the original cars made for the series. This one as you can see, did not have the doors welded shut, but does have the tan interior, which was simply sprayed tan. Since there were many cars made for the series, as they would get trashed quickly from the aggressive jumps and stunts required for the show the interiors at times were not even altered to tan. This car has a very sloppy mask job and has a lot of over spray on the door jams, indicating how quickly the motor pool had to detail the cars for the show. The shotty interior paint job is a great indication of the cars authenticity.
