About “Gen'l Sherman”
One family owner. Still have window sticker, protecto plate, emission control systems manual and the owners manual. Sticker price $4,466.09 (actual delivered price $3,836.17 including tax, tag, etc.).
Within two weeks after the car was restored, I drove it on a 720 mile round trip to NC and back so my father could see it looking like new again (at least the body and interior). Since then, I have had the engine detailed and painted (will add pictures later).
Since leaving the dealer's lot, this car has not and hopefully will never see a trailor for transporting it. It was my father's commuting car in the 70's and 80's and will still be driven every where. When I retire, I'd like to use it to deliver meals for "meals on wheels."
About “General Lee 1”
General Lee 1 was driven through the field leaving the Duke farm just before the last chase sceen in the Big Screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard. Hazzardous Productions came to my house, picked up both cars, took them to Baton Rough, repainted them, filmed them and brought them back. Not so unharmed.
