The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-1985), Black Charger License Plate

made from scratch movie prop

From the season 7 episode 'Happy Birthday, General Lee', This is the license plate of the Black 1969 Charger that Bo and Luke Duke buy from a Capitol City junkyard in 1976. They rebuild the wrecked car into the General Lee.


The CNH 320 license plate is already on the car when the Dukes buy it, as can be seen in the HD screencap. It would have had a Capitol City license plate until after they re-registered the car in Hazzard County, because Rosco mentions in a previous episode that it takes 30 days to get a new license plate from the DMV.


This plate was made by the same prop house that did the originals for the show in the 1980s. This was a spare plate that had a defect in the county area. I fixed the affected area and modified the plate into the Capitol City version by using custom vinyl graphics that I recreated based on the style and font of the original props.
