The General Lee Model Car

The General Lee model car was built in the 1970s. The first five episodes of the show were filmed in the Georgia towns of Conyers and Covington. Six Dodge Chargers were bought for these episodes. Warner Brothers built and shipped the three first General Lees to Georgia. The show’s editor John Marendi labeled these first General Lees as “LEE 1, LEE 2, and LEE 3” for film editing purposes.

Warner Brothers decided to bring the entire production in-house after the success of the series to create General Lee model cars. It was a major highlight of the show, and the studio received a tremendous amount of fan mail about Lee models. Mechanics on the staff were required to build these cars to meet exact specifications. These standards included the removal of side markers, graphics, and roll bars.

The General Lee has been a popular toy car over the years. Millions of General Lee collectibles and toy cars have been created from the iconic General Lee. Some fans even modified real vehicles to look like General Lee. The original General Lee was even restored by an Indianapolis DJ in 2006.

There are three General Lee model cars available in the market today. The first one was the LEE 1, which was a 1969 Charger. It featured a roll cage, an AM/FM radio, and power drum brakes. It was originally painted in B5 Blue with a black interior. Later, it was repainted in Tan to match the other cars. The car was also used in one of the opening scenes of the movie “One Armed Bandits.”

A South Kent councillor posted a photo on his Facebook page of the General Lee model car in Ontario, Canada. After the photo was shared, he received an objection about the flag. However, he declined to remove the photo. Don Shropshire, the councillor who received the complaint, contacted Thompson to inform him that he knew about the photo.

The Danbury Mint produces 1:24 scale models of famous cars. The General Lee model car is a beautiful showcase model and a valuable collectible. These models are a great investment for anyone who is interested in automobile history. They also make a perfect gift for any auto enthusiast.

In addition to the General Lee model car, a 1969 Dodge Charger has also been manufactured. The iconic car is orange in color and features a Confederate battle flag on the roof. The General Lee model car has become a popular symbol of the Dukes of Hazzard series. Its image has been featured on many items from underwear to lunch boxes.
