1969 Dodge Super Bee 17013 Miles Red Coupe 440 Six Pack Automatic
10 Gears, 11 Inch Brakes, HD Suspension, HD Radiator, H Code Wheels and of course the famed lift-off hood. This older restoration shows very well and was completed in correct Bright Red with Black Bumble Bee Stripe. A fair amount of documentation is included and shows this A12 as a three owner car.
The origin of the name, “Super Bee”, has its basis in the “B” Body designation pertinent to Chrysler’s mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner and Charger. Although the two cars are similar in external appearance, the Super Bee was slightly heavier by 65 LBS and rode on a 117-inch wheelbase compared to the Road Runner’s 116 inch wheelbase. In addition to minor external differences, such as larger rear wheel openings, the bumblebee tail stripe, fancier grille, and the taillight ornamentation, the Super Bee also used actual diecast chrome-plated “Bee” medallions.
Only 1,907 A12 M-code 440 Six Pack 1969 1/2 Dodge Super Bees were produced.
There aren’t too many cars that invoke the muscle car era like a LIFT-OFF HOOD Super Bee. Unmistakable as Dodge’s Showroom to Drag Strip Factory Asphalt Shredder.
