Dodge, founded as the Dodge Brothers Company machine shop by brothers Horice Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge in the early 1900s, Dodge was originally a supplier of parts and assemblies for Detroit based automakers and began building complete automobiles under the "Dodge Brothers" brand in 1914. It was when Chrysler bought the company however that they then started putting muscle cars on the map. The Charger has been synonymous with pure muscle car magic, the Detroit muscle car scene was huge in the late '60's and '70's.
The General Lee is the name given to a 1969 Dodge Charger driven in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard by the Duke cousins, Bo and Luke, along with cousins Coy and Vance. It is known for its signature horn, its police chases, stunts, especially its long jumps and for having its doors welded shut, leaving the Dukes to climb in and out through the windows.
So, all you Dukes lovers, come and get into a piece of history as this one was part of the original TV programme and features the signatures of all of the original cast and crew on the back of the car. Jump in through the window, put on the cowboy hat and give us an old 'ye-ha'!
