The first General Lee Dodge Charger made in 1969 will be auctioned off next month at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
This is actually the first General Lee Dodge Charger to be auctioned off, the star from ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’, and even if there’s no word on how much the muscle car can get, we know that a replica of this car, owned by John Schneider, was actually auctioned off of an impressive 450.000 USD in 2008. The 1969 Dodge Charge has been known as Lee 1 during the 1978 production of the movie and it was picked up by Travis Bell, going through a set of buyers until ending up in the hands of Marvin Murphy.
As a reminder, the General Lee is the modified Dodge Charger driven by the Duke cousins Bo and Luke in the television series ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’, and it’s coming in one body style, two-door coupe, with a three-speed TorqueFlite transmission. The vehicle embodies the Southern United States with its Confederate naval jack on its roof and a horn which actually plays the first line of the song ‘Dixie’. Sadly this is all we know for now about the first General Lee but we will get back to you after the auction ends.
