Auto World Announces Newly Detailed General Lee

Auto World Announces Newly Detailed General Lee
Silver Screen Machines, a brand of Auto World, is proud to announce the release of the most accurate 1:18 scale General Lee die-cast model ever, paying homage to the iconic car from the classic television series “Dukes of Hazzard™.” Newly freshened and ready to roll, collectors can finally have their own authentic General Lee – right down to the “welded shut” doors!
“We’ve spent a lot of time making this car perfect,” said Auto World Brand Manager Tony Karamitsos. “We went through every detail to make sure that this replica is the best one yet, from the flag graphic on the roof to the engine details under the hood.”
The model is being released under the popular Authentics line, and is composed of well over 100 parts.  Some of the changes that were made to the tool include a revised flag on the roof with re-aligned and correctly positioned “General Lee” script, deleted headrests on the seats, a gloss-black roll bar, a lengthened rear antenna, and a chassis featuring the correct factory overspray pattern. In addition, the wheels have been correctly painted and detailed, and the correct 383 engine is in place, complete with air cleaner and decal; there is no spare tire or jack in the trunk (and the trunk’s been painted); the Charger R/T grille emblem and wheel well trim have been removed, and so has the passenger side mirror.
Karamitsos says it best when he states, ” This is as close as you’ll get to owning a General Lee just like those good ol” Duke Boys!” We’d have to agree.

  1. What price are we looking at for this car? Obviously the downturn and current climate is having an effect on us all.
    Be kind

  2. I believe the engine should have Chrome Valve covers & Air cleaner (as in “Happy Birthday General Lee”).

  3. Andy,
    is this the car Bubba Watson bought? Nice write up, and a cool collectible! Can’t wait to get this one!


  4. It is good that this model has been upgraded. One has to ask though, it it worth paying a hundred dollars for a duded up toy made from a very old tool that sold for less than $50 a few years ago. I for one will take my money elsewhwere (like Highway 61).

  5. As much as I liked the tv show { Daisy Duke is HOT, ssshwing ! } And I love all Mopars, I agree with you Richard . This diecast needs to be put to bed. Especially at what the price is. Let it go Auto World and do something else like a stock version of the Dodge Magnum.
