An authentic jump-car from the 2005 movie.
It was bare bones but the guy straightened the frame and built it back up from the inside out.
The full jump done by this car for sale is not seen in the movie because there wasn't enough air-time. I remember reading that something under the car scraped (or gouged) the ramp and slowed it right down. I believe they leave the launch portion done by this car in the movie but the air-time was done with the set-up they had to launch driverless General Lee's. You can see part of the full air-time jump at :57 seconds into the trailer ...
That full air-time jump car is not the one for sale.

So it was doomed from the get-go.
I think this quote sums up how they should've been treated when they were looking for chargers for the film: "After losing the two previous vehicles we had been issued, the only car the department was willing to release to us at this point was an unmarked 1987 Yugo, a Yugoslavian import donated to the department as a test vehicle by the government of that country and reflecting the cutting edge of Serbo-Croatian technology."

One of the freeway launch cars, they launched two of them. This one is actually a 1970.
Even though it got crashed when it hit the cement divider wall. NOT when it landed. It is a survivor. They show all of that in the out takes. I have driven this car in two parades, so it can be driven.

Buy It Now is $55,000 ...
Screen used General Lee from the Movie Dukes of Hazzard. This is car #22 which played a prominent part in the 2005 Movie. It was the car seen in the beginning where it was chased and got wedged between the farm equipment. It was also the car that was vandalized so it wouldn't make the big race. It still has some blue paint still on the grille from the scene.
The car is equipped with a 383 motor. The same motor it came with is still in the car but it has been all gone through including transmission and rear end and brakes because it was very tired and driven hard during filming. Over 15,000 was spent on freshening it up. This car has a black interior and a full roll cage.

^ I'm not sure what happened with that one, price was dropped to $50,000 but no sale.?
This thread was General Lee's from the movie but we can add clones here too. Not too many General's posted here, what I've seen in the last decade or so is a decent General is in the $30,000 range. Here's one in Nashville for $35,000 so there's the slight 2018 inflation And it appears to be a really nice General ...
440 big block automatic. The car is in very nice condition with no rust or rot issues. The car runs and drives great title status: clean

- Nice one in Missouri, proper 1969 Charger. Sometimes we see 68's or 70's with the front or rear made to look like a '69, sometimes they're left as-is and don't look quite right. The '69 is the way to go and of course there's always an element of folks who weep for Charger's being made into General Lee's but if you spend time online looking around there's TONS of original 1969 Charger's out there FAR outnumbering the ones turned into General's. Nothing wrong with a well done General as far as I'm concerned .
Numbers Matching 383. New American Racing Vector Wheels, New Tires, New Trunk Floor, New Gas Tank, New Rear End with 3.55 Gears. New Floor Pans, New Front Seat Covers, New Carpet, New Door Panels, New Headliner, New Chrome Around Windshield and Rear Window, New Bumpers. New Front NOS Fenders, New Rear Quarters, New Radiator, and New Holley Carburetor. 86,000 miles. Title Condition: Clear

- Right after I said the '69 is the way to go one of the Holy Grail General's pops up and it's a '68 !! The claim is this is one of the screen used General's from the television show. If any of you are up on your General Lee trivia you'll recall there were 17 left after the show was finished. They sat around at Warner Bros. until they were all sold at the same time to Wayne Wooten and he was allowed to sell them to fans but they could not be used in advertising or to make a buck off of. So this is one of the 17 and as mentioned it's a 1968 with the '69 taillights. Price is $250,000.
This is a fully documented, registered authentic General Lee used during the 80's TV series Dukes of Hazzard. It was the 2nd nicest of the General Lees released by Warner Bros. to Wayne Wooten in 1991. It was brought into use during the 3rd season making it a fairly early car and used for a total of 5 seasons until the show was canceled. It was used for lite stunt work and as a camera car. In Warner Bros inventory it was known as car SGL26 and later updated to WGL33. It started life as a 1968 Big Block 383 with a 727 and was converted to a '69 by Warner Bros. The original matching #'s 383 engine is still in the car! Since the car left Warner Bros possession it has appeared at Dukes event where nearly all of the cast and crew have autographed it. Comes with a Warner Bros. log book showing the cars history and work (along with other cars) during its time with WB.
This car is being offered by owner on consignment and is not located at the Volo museum facility. Serious buyers may see the car in NC by appointment prior to purchase
