Bo Duke To Say Goodbye To The General Lee

John Schneider (the original “Bo Duke”) will auction off his General Lee, the popular muscle car from “The Dukes of Hazard” movies and TV show, at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company’s 37th Annual Collector Car Event from January 12-20 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
At the auction Schneider’s 1969 Dodge Charger Coupe, along with other cars from the stars, will be sold at no reserve.
The General Lee is undoubtedly considered one of the most famous cars in the world and was involved in some of TV’s most memorable car chases.
The car possesses a powerful 511 cid, 725 horsepower engine with a 727 transmission, making it any car collector’s dream.
The general public can attend Barrett-Jackson’s Greatest Collector Car Auction, and bids will be accepted for Schneider’s legendary car, “General Lee” on Saturday, January 19 (Lot #1321).
Fans can also watch the live broadcast on The Speed Network over the six day auction.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of “General Lee” will be donated to Schneider’s charity of choice, “Cure Autism Now”.
