Parting with General Lee

John Schneider is auctioning off his personal and iconic “General Lee” Dodge Charger R/T. John Schneider also known as Bo Duke, thanks to the famous television series, The Dukes of Hazzard. He also played Jonathan Kent, the adoptive father of Clark Kent on the hit show Smallville.

Used mostly for fundraising and charity events, John also used the car in his self-made movie, “Collier & Co, Hot Pursuit!” and has even raced it in The Silver State Classic Challenge. But this General is not just for show, it packs a Hemi, and not just the stock 426 Hemi, either. The car actually has a 511 crate motor that pumps out 725 horsepower. It also has an upgraded Hotchkis suspension, auxiliary transmission by Gear Vendor, Viper brakes, and a racing steering box. John says he hates to part with this car, but he’s really looking forward to building a new one. As of Tuesday morning, the highest bid on eBay is $2.3 million.

Autographed Hood

According to John, this particular car was one of the cars featured in the last REAL Dukes of Hazzard movie, “Dukes Go To Hollywood”. The underside of the the hood is autographed by all of the surviving original cast members and crew from the TV show, as well. It was also the prototype for all of the General Lees used in the most recent Jessica Simpson Dukes of Hazzard movie.
