The DUKES

Dukes of Hazzard General Lee Model

2013-07-27 10.45.11

This model is newer than I was expecting (1997), but maybe that just means the adventures of the Duke boys are timeless. I used to watch the Dukes of Hazzard every weekend as a kid and dreamed of someday having my own orange Dodge Charger to jump over hills, rivers, and other cars in Hazzard county. My only concern with jumping this one is, if the car snaps together, I’m afraid it might snap apart just as easily…

  1. It was a bit of a low quality model as the orange plastic on the base of the model was made of cheaper quality plastic and looked very off compared to other ERTL model kits.
    However…no one cared because it was the General freakin Lee! My Uncle had this bad Boy and I loved looking at it as a kid!

    I remember getting my General Lee car (Non model version) and my Bo and Luke figures!! Great line of toys! Awesome!

    Apparently, the real life ones would fall apart too after many of the stunts. They were rigged to be remote controlled, and the TV show went through 250-300 68 and 69 chargers.
