1969 69 Hemi Superbee For Sale

The original Dodge Super Bee was based on the Dodge Coronet. A two-door coupé produced from 1968 until 1970. It was the cousin of the Plymouth Road Runner, priced at USD$3, 027. The name 'Super Bee' was derived from the 'B' Body designation assigned to Chrysler's mid-sized cars including the Coronet, Roadrunner, and Charger. The interior of the Super Bee borrowed the racecar-inspired and more sophisticated gauges and speedometer dash cluster from the Dodge Charger while the four-speed manual cars received a Hurst Competition-Plus shifter with Hurst linkage, compared to the budget-minded Road Runner's less expensive Inland shifter and linkage. All these niceties added to the higher purchase price of the Super Bee compared to its Plymouth cousin and ultimately affected its sales numbers. The Super Bee, like nearly all Chrysler muscle cars of that era, was available with the Hemi engine, though this option raised the price by 33% and only 125 were sold. The Super Bee came with the 383ci (6. 3 litre) Magnum Big-Block V8, uprated to 335bhp using the 440 heads and a stronger camshaft. It also had a heavy-duty suspension package, an optional Mopar A-833 four-speed manual transmission and high-performance tyres. Outside, a stripe (with the bee logo) was wrapped around the tail, the famous 'Bumble Bee Stripe'. The Super Bee was a favourite with racers from new then found a following among teenage enthusiasts as a bargain used car in the early seventies. This makes a true survivor a very rare commodity these days!

This amazingly untouched car is one such survivor. She arrived in the UK in the late seventies, a matching numbers, un-molested, un-repaired, un-restored, rust-free car, imported by a marque specialist, still considered one the UK's top Mopar gurus and collectors. The current owner purchased her in 1982 and since then she has had the most wonderful and colourful life, while always getting the finest care any Mopar car could wish for - in the hands of Rare Performance Motors of Aldershot. As you see her now, she is dressed for the road but ready to race in a hearbeat! While the original, matching-numbers 383ci engine and the original and correct steel, twin-scoop hood (bonnet) and other original-fitment items have remained by her side throughout and come with her, she is currently fitted with the lightweight, 'Six-Pack lift-off' hood, covering the most special feature, a 440ci Super-Commando Big Block motor with THE Stage V Aluminium Hemi-head Conversion. Widely available from 1986, this conversion was carried out in 1994 to the magnificent standards both Stage V and RPM are still famous for. So offered here is a HEMI head motor, but better and more flexible, more reliable and much more powerful. Output sits at around 500bhp with around 450-500ftlb of torque. It has the four speed stickshift (manual) with Hurst Competition-Plus shifter with Hurst linkage connected to the 'must-have' 3. 55 Sure-Grip 8¾ rear end. In her long and interesting history, 58 FHO saw competition on the drag-strip (a result at Santa Pod amongst others), in the early 1980s. She was also circuit raced from 1994 to '97 in the H. A. R. A series. A number of timing slips and race results, as well as period photographs come with the car's history. Other notable features of the current specifications include HD torsion bars (1. 25in), Koni adjustable race shocks front and rear, Willwood Superlite/ Dynalite disc brakes front and rear, Performance wheels, BF Goodrich tyres 255/ 60/ 15 and power steering. The original, matching-numbers gearbox rebuilt 1500 miles ago is still fitted. The seats, including the original bench seat, were re-trimmed in the early 1980s. Dashboard, carpets, door cards and so on are all original fitments and all in very good order, as is all the side glass. In fact, this superb Super Bee is in an amazingly rust-free condition throughout. Used very little in recent years but maintained in top order nonetheless. She had a full engine top-end rebuild last 2000 miles and has been re-commissioned for the road. A truly exciting road car or indeed has the potential to be returned back to full original specification or a competitive racer very easily indeed.
