Auction Block: 1969 Dodge Charger R/T ‘Dukes Of Hazzard’ Recreation

Sep 25, 2019

Category: Rides

The latter half of the 1970s was dominated by the Dukes Of Hazzard — a rambunctious crew of individuals whose adventures in a rural community birthed some of the greatest car chases, stunts, and comedic content of all time. Even today, the television series is held in high regard, especially within the automotive community — thanks, in large part, to the show’s iconic Dodge Charger, the General Lee.

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to own the powerful vehicle that helped Bo and Luke Duke slip through the fingers of their pursuers in the show, now’s your chance. At Barrett Jackson’s Las Vegas 2019 auction, a replica of the pair’s famed platform will be up for bid. The custom 1969 Dodge Charger R/T is certainly a spitting image of its progenitor, sporting the same nostalgic colorway, wet-sanded and polished bodywork, and a powerful 510ci V8 iron-block engine that’s capable of producing over 600-horsepower, and 600 ft/lbs of torque. As you might expect, it’s been outfitted with a handful of modern upgrades, including a custom-built 4L80E automatic transmission by Cole, a Hughes 3000 stall converter, and an Edelbrock Performer RPM air-gap intake. To make the deal even sweeter, the Charger is set to be auctioned off beside a 1973 Plymouth Sattelite Custom Coupe police vehicle — allowing you, and another lucky friend or family member, to recreate some of your favorite scenes from the show.
