There’s a fairly short list of classic TV cars, but none of them are perhaps as iconic as the ‘General Lee’ from The Dukes of Hazzard. Well, now one of those very cars – a 1969 Dodge Charger – which was owned by actor John Schneider (better known as ‘Bo Duke’) is headed to auction, courtesy of Mecum.
Loaded with a 7.2-liter RB V8 engine (which once had a brake-horsepower rating of 375) mated to an automatic transmission, this is the ultimate nostalgia-inducing retro car for fans of both television and American Muscle. And it’s not just a slick paint job and a notable owner, either – as both the driver’s side sun visor and bottom of the hood have been signed by the cast and crew of the classic TV show. So whether you’re into awesome old-school autos or you’re just looking for the ideal car on which to slide across the hood – you might want to consider putting a bid down on this one when it hits the block at Mecum’s Las Vegas auction later this year.
