The Dukes Of Hazzard Present The Ghost Of The General Lee 1968 Dodge Charger

We all remember the Dukes of Hazzard? It was a great TV show and with one hell of a ride featured in it. We are presenting you a video of that ride, which is considered one of the greatest muscle cars of all time, the famous 1968 General Lee Dodge Charger.

The car was known by its performance, wild stunts, high jumps, practically in every episode, and with the doors welded, the Dukes were getting in through the windows. The 68 Charger, driven by Luke Duke and Cousins Bo, featured in all episodes of the show, except for one. Variety of engines were used in the TV show General Lees – 318, 383, 440-cubic-inch engines and one 511 Hemi was used in Bo’s General Lee. There is one engine missing from the series – that’s the 426 Hemi engine.

The Charger was named by a Confederate General Robert E. Lee, and the car represents a true piece of the southern United States, with its name and the Confederate battle flag on top of the roof. The idea for the name of the car was developed by Jerry Rushing. And the same name was also in the movie that was originally developed for television in 1975.

The same 1968 Dodge Charger was used in the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie, starring Jessica Simpson and Johnny Knoxville. Over a period of three years a lot of hard work was put into this Charger and at the end it paid off. And you won’t believe when you see the owner. It’s a 15 year old boy named Ben. He bought this iconic ride at the age of 12 and as he says “It was love at first sight”.
