Hardtop Coupe
Chassis #: XP29G9B388140
Sold for $52,000 at 2013 Bonhams - The Scottsdale Auction.
Over the course of seven years the simplistic, and yet, attractive lines of a Dodge Charger flew across the television screens and imaginations of people throughout the United States. Finished in bright orange and topped off with a rebel flag and the curious nickname 'General Lee', the 1969 Dodge Charger would go from just another muscle car to one never to be forgotten again.

It is believed that more than 300 Dodge Chargers would be used over the course of the seven years of the famous Dukes of Hazzard television show. The price of fame for the vast majority of those that would take part of the show would be nothing more than a moment of fame and a heap of scrap metal.

The toll the show took on the numbers of period Dodge Chargers would be such that it was widely rumored that toward the end of the shows career the production team would actually have a hard time locating any 1969-1970 Chargers. It is amazing to think that such an iconic car would barely actually exist in reality. But, there would be a handful that would avoid the disastrous gauntlet and would remain intact for fans to reminisce and drool over.

One such 'General Lee' that would survive to rigors of fame and The Dukes of Hazzard life being chased by the inept sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane, would be a 1969 Dodge Charger, chassis number XP29G9B388140.

This particular 'General Lee' would be just one of the stunt cars used in the show but that would survive without any serious damage. Unrestored, XP29G9B388140 still retains the original copy of the original purchase agreement between Warner Bros and Jay Ohrberg. The date of the agreement was confirmed for September 5th, 1986.

Following the conclusion of the television show, the Dodge Charger would be rather forgotten until, in 1998, the car would change hands. Then, in 2001, the car again would be sold. This time the car would be a part of the Hollywood Rock and Roll Museum in Branson, Missouri, but this would last for just a short period of time, until the car would again be sold at the end of 2001 to yet another interested owner.

The 1969 Dodge Charger would remain in the possession of its owner for a period of a few years. Then, in 2005, the car would again be sold. The cult icon would be sold to its current owner and would remain as a proud figure in the collection until being offered, once again, at the 2013 Bonhams auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Still sporting its 383ci V8 engine and a four-speed manual transmission, XP29G9B388140, remains in running condition and still retains its bright orange, famous livery made famous by the '80s television program. Documented and unrestored, the car retains its originality and, as a result, its cult appeal as well.

Heading to the Bonhams auction in Scottsdale, the 1969 Dodge Charger 'General Lee', chassis number XP29G9B388140 would be estimated to draw between $55,000 and $65,000. Certainly an affordable sum for an iconic car that became every bit as big a star as the actors.
