General Lee RC Car
If you’re looking for a classic rc car at a bargain price, consider buying a General Lee rc car. Although it may be a few decades old, this item still works great! It was stored for many decades and will be shipped to your address via USPS Priority Mail.
Depending on the manufacturer, a General Lee RC car could be very different from an original General Lee. The main difference lies in the graphics. Early General Lees had crossed flags on the front, back, and sides, but those were removed in later cars. Other details, like the wheels, are very similar. These cars are equipped with 14-by-7-inch wheels with center caps designed by Carroll Shelby. They also feature B. F. Goodrich Radial T/A tires with blackwall sides.
The General Lee’s car looked shabby orange before the show was shot. The “01” was painted by hand and had black steel wheels. It also had a standard bumper and functioning doors. After the car was vandalized, Cooter decided to give it a makeover. The new paint job is Hemi orange. The car also features American Racing “V”, 10-spoke “turbine”, wheels and black grille guards. It also features a Confederate flag on its roof and a Dixie Horn above the door windows openings.
Earlier, the General Lee was a full-size car with a roll cage. It had air-conditioning, an AM/FM stereo and power drum brakes. It was originally painted B5 Blue with a black interior, but was later painted in tan to match the other two. It also featured a chrome rocker trim and a vinyl top in black. The left quarter panel of General Lee was badly installed and required repair.
In 1978, the first five episodes of General Lee were shot in Georgia’s Conyers and Covington. Warner Bros. built six Dodge Chargers for these episodes and shipped the first three General Lees to Georgia. John Marendi labeled the first three cars “LEE 1, LEE 2” and “LEE 3” for film editing purposes.
There are 23 real General Lees, which are all in varying states of repair. One of them, “Bo’s General Lee”, is owned by John Schneider. It has signatures on its hood. Despite its age, this particular General Lee was originally based on a 1968 Charger. It also used the same taillight panel and grill as a 1969 Charger.
One thing that sets this rc car apart from the others is that it does not have an opening door. Cars often have doors that are permanently welded shut in racing situations. You must access them by opening the windows. This rc car isn’t a classic, but it is still fun to drive.
