This is my pride and joy, my 73 Charger SE dressed up like the General Lee. Why? Well, at the time I bought the car back in November of 2004, I didn’t have the funds to spend on the correct year Charger that they used on the show. They were just too much money and are hard to find. So when I found a 73 Charger locally and at a great price, I just had to get it!
1973 Dodge Charger General Lee
It needed a lot done, but after a year or so of hard work, it came out great! Right now it is sporting a…decent hemi-orange paint job (my dad and I painted it ourselves, it was our first time painting a car), nice black interior, and a 400 Big Block Engine. The engine bay is nothing to be proud of, but it runs tough. Every time it is on the road we always have to honk our Dixie Horn.
