Another General Lee Charger up for saleEnlarge Photo
The 1969 Dodge Charger is based on an original 440-cid R/T and was converted to General Lee configuration by General Lee Enterprises in the early 1980s. The car subsequently spent 20 years in storage in Kentucky prior to undergoing a comprehensive restoration and was then sold to the current Australian owner last year.
In May of last year, a replica version of the General Lee reached $9,900,500 during bidding on eBay but the buyer soon turned out to be a fraudster. Regardless, documented General Lee Dodge Chargers are now very collectible and we suspect the $260,000 estimate for this car is very modest.
