Car never removed from it's box- stock photos used. The 2007 model AMM964 -1 was designed and released under Ertl's Authentics brand, but it wasn't authentic at all.
Instead of focusing on the real General Lee, they focused on the 1969 Dodge Charger first, then added a few things to make it look like the General Lee. 2012's model AMM964 -3 , released under the Auto World's Silver Screen Machines brand, was a complete redesign- this time focusing on the General Lee instead of the stock 1969 Dodge Charger.
The Auto World Silver Screen Machines is by far, the most accurate representation of the "real" 1969 General Lee from from the 1980's television series: The Dukes of Hazzard. Auto World Die-Cast, 2012 Press Release. Silver Screen Machines, a brand of Auto World, is proud to announce the release of the most accurate 1:18 scale General Lee die-cast model ever, paying homage to the iconic car from the classic television series Dukes of Hazzard. Newly freshened and ready to roll, collectors can finally have their own authentic General Lee........ Weve spent a lot of time making this car perfect, said Auto World Brand Manager Tony Karamitsos.We went through every detail to make sure that this replica is the best one yet, from the flag graphic on the roof to the engine details under the hood. Changes that were made include. A revised flag on the roof with re-aligned and correctly positioned General Lee script. Deleted headrests on the seats. A lengthened rear antenna with chrome base. A chassis featuring the correct factory black overspray pattern. The wheels have been correctly painted and detailed.
The correct 383 engine is in place, complete with air cleaner and decal. There is no spare tire or jack in the trunk (and the trunks been painted).
The Charger R/T grille emblem and wheel well trim have been removed. The passenger side mirror has been removed. That's quite a lot of improvements!
