General Lee #14 - Scotlea GL - May 2007

1969 Dodge Charger

Project: Scotlea General Lee

Scotlea Hot Rods needed to have a General Lee to showcase all that we are capable of, plus we just really like to have a totally radical car unlike any other. As you can see below, there wasn't much to start with:

 

It took almost a year, but the results were well worth the wait. The outside of the car is essentially unchanged from the basic General Lee look - 75 Corvette Flame Red paint, decals under 10 coats of clear, and highly polished. The wheels are original 10-spoke vectors that have been polished and powdercoated for a great look. 



Inside, we took great liberties and installed some serious custom components. The entire dash cluster is custom made with a carbon fiber backing, Ultralite II gauges, Alpine stereo, Vintage Air AC system controls, and relocated ignition, lights, and wiper switches. The custom console contains the B&M Megashifter and roll-control switch, power window switches, and armrest console - all built with carbon fiber and matching vinyl upholstery. The seat inserts were removed and replaced with a light tan suede for a custom look and comfortable feel. The six-point rollbar is real - welded to the frame to assist in structural integrity. Power windows and door locks add to the modern comforts that make this ride fun to drive.

Under the hood, the 440HP block has been stuffed with lots of goodies so that it puts out well over 500 horsepower. The dual Edelbrock carbs top off this killer setup - and the custom cold-air intake system keeps the engine supplied with fresh air. To stop this bad-boy, SSBC disc brakes all around are controled by a Hydroboost braking system. Lots of custom touches here and there make this engine fun to look at.
