Style 1 of a Duncan Wheel yo-yo branded for the General Lee car from "The Dukes of Hazzard", an American television show that aired 1979-1985. A Duncan trick sheet was also included in the package. Duncan jointly released several other wheel yo-yo designs loosely based on different vehicles used in the show, such Daisy's CJ Jeep and the Hazzard County Sheriff's car. It's worth noting that the style of Duncan Wheel on the blister cards never matched the style of wheels found on the General Lee, Daisy's CJ Jeep, or the sheriff's car in the television show. For example, the General Lee used 10 spoke rims (specifically, American Racing VN47 Vector 10 spoke rims), but none of the Duncan Wheel models resembled anything close to a 10 spoke rim.

Duncan made four different wheel (basically, the hubcap area) designs. However, they randomly applied one of three different silver foil labels ("The General Lee", or "Daisy's CJ", or "Hazzard Police") on each design. The yo-yos were then packaged, matching the silver foil labels with the name on the blister cards. If you are collecting these, it's more important to collect the three different silver foil labels than the four different wheel hubcap designs.
