1968 Dodge Charger
You are purchasing a fully restored, 968 Dodge Charger General Lee replica. This is one of the nicest replicas that you will ever see. The car was purchased in 1997 and restoration was completed in 2006. The car was also autographed by all the surviving cast members from the show. I was lucky enough to get James Best's autograph on there, oo. The car has been converted to a 1969 Charger just like they used to do on the TV show. The bodywork is excellent. Both quarter panels have been replaced. The trunk floor pans, ear outer wheel wells, nd quarter panel extensions have also been replaced. The front floor pans have also been replaced. The car is painted using 1975 Corvette Flame Red (Code C70) just like they used to use on the show, oo. The flag, umbers, nd "General Lee" text are also all painted on. No decals here! The tail panel extension was replaced with one form a 1969 Dodge Charger, s was the front grille. All the side marker lights, n the fenders and quarter panels, ave been filled in. They used to do this on the later episodes of the show, oo. When the floor pans were off, he inside of the frame rails were sandblasted and a rust inhibitor was also applied. Underneath the car is excellent, oo. The entire under carriage has been sandblasted, rimed, ndercoated, ainted and clear coated. The engine compartment, nd underneath the hood, s painted semi-gloss black. The entire inside of the cabin, nd trunk, as painted, lear coated, nd lined with dyna mat. The trunk houses a full-sized spare. Both front and rear bumpers have also been re-chromed.
The car originally had a 318 motor in it, ut this was replaced with a fully rebuilt 440 V-8 motor. The cylinders were bored .030" over and the compression ratio requires the use of 93 octane. Atop the motor sits an aluminum Edelbrock intake and a 4 barrel Holley carb. Moroso valve covers sit atop the heads. The transmission is a 3 speed automatic that was rebuilt, oo. All the gas and brake lines are stainless steel. The gas tank was also replaced. The car has power steering and manual brakes with small block brake drums on the front and rear. The rear end had a 3.55 Auburn Gear differential installed in 2014. This is a sure grip differential. The exhaust headers are Hooker headers that have been ceramic coated inside and out. A 3" Flowmaster dual exhaust completes the exhaust system. The car also has the signature, 2 note dixie horn, ith the horns mounted under the hood and the button hidden inside the ash tray. The car rides on original American Racing vector rims in 14x7 sizing. The tires are all BF Goodrich Radial TAs, ncluding the full sized spare in the trunk. There isn’t a windshield washer reservoir or washer pump, or are there any turn signal wiring harnesses for the hood indicators. The heater core hoses have not been installed yet, ither. The odometer on the car has stopped working a few years ago. It needs to be repaired or replaced. The speedometer also reads slightly higher than the actual speed. This is due to the tire size on the car and this can be fixed by replacing the speedometer gear with a 36 tooth gear.
The interior of the car is astonishing. The front and rear seats, nd front and rear lower door panels are from Legendary Auto interiors in the Dukes of Hazzard tan color. The remaining parts of the interior were custom dyed to match Legendary's color. The visors have all the cast members' autographs. These include autographs from Catherine Bach, ohn Schneider, om Wopat, en Jones, ick Hurst, ames Best, nd Sonny Shroyer. The car also has the correct Cobra CB radio and radio shack, ear drop, ntenna.
