Presenting an alternate take on classic Dodge Charger livery

Jeff Glucker July 11, 2018 Cars You Should Know 13 Comments

I love the old Dodge Charger. I’d personally never drive one with General Lee livery. Now, I wouldn’t drive one painted like this either but I admire what this person has done here.

For the record, my own (someday) 1968 Dodge Charger would be gloss black with a satin black RT stripe on the tail. I’d also find a way to swap in 1969 Charger taillights. That car will happen someday… if I believe it, I’ll achieve it. Right?

Anyone? Okay, forget it. Just admire this General GRANT Charger.

  • The 34-star flag is a nice touch, although one could make a case for the 33-star version, which was still the official flag at the start of the war. (Yes, I’m from Oregon.)

    I’m a Mopar fanatic – especially B bodies. BUT, in this case I’m much more interested in the ’69 or ’70 C/K 10/20 parked next to it, or the AMX, or the D100 Adventurer

      The AMX, definitely.

    Inquiring minds want to know .. to complete the anti-metaphor, does the horn play The Battle Hymn of the Republic?

      When Johnny Comes Marching Home?

      Or… Yankee Doodle, although thats a different war

  • Punkrockbilly

    This is absolutely spectacular.

    I love it, and to really torque a Southerner, make it General Sherman and write “don’t make make come back there again” on a windshield banner.

      Yeah, because war crimes are awesome.

    Well played.

  • smalleyxb122

    I get it. It’s clever. I don’t particularly like it though.

    Theme song would have to change, although bad young girls might be a refreshing change from good old boys…

    I always liked the mid-70s Aston Martin V8, and thought it’d be cool to put the Saltire on the roof of a blue one– General-Lee style with a late-18th-century twist.
