A group of parents just found a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T in a barn while looking for a special present for their kids. The Charger was a perfect reproduction of the renowned General Lee from the television series “The Dukes of Hazzard,” complete with its distinctive orange paint and Confederate flag roof sticker.
After a thorough cleaning, the Charger seemed to have recently left the assembly line despite being coated in dust and cobwebs. The children’s emotions were amusing when the parents drove their kids to the barn to show them the automobile. They were astounded by the car’s condition and found it hard to believe that it was a General Lee.
As one of the most recognizable vehicles in American popular culture, the Charger has a long and illustrious history. It was released in 1966 as a high-performance sports automobile, and automotive aficionados rapidly adopted it as their favorite. The General Lee is one of the most well-known automobiles in the world and was first featured in the 1979–1985 television series “The Dukes of Hazzard.”
If you’re a parent, or like kids in general, then you will most definitely love this video. When these parents picked up a General Lee styled Dodge Charger they decided to set up a scenario emulating a barn find.
A real barn find these days is pretty unlikely, so dad stashed his new car away and brought the kids in to “find” the gem in the rough. As with most kids, the youngsters were hardly able to contain their excitement. This is an experience that these little guys will probably hold onto for the rest of their lives. Go Dad!
