When the Plymouth Road Runner experienced decent results, the executives at
Dodge decided that it was time to build a competitor to Plymouth's Muscle
Car. Even with the Charger and Coronet R/T Dodge still built a new
creation dubbed the Super Bee. Many looked at the creation as a flat out
steal from the Roadrunner. Regardless, the mid-year creation was seen as a
success as Dodge created over 48,000 Super Bees in 1968.
This 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee stands today, as a true testament to why
these cars were so popular. The Super Bee has been completely restored,
features the powerful original 383ci V8 and a stunning look.
Thanks to a complete restoration the Super Bee today is covered in a fresh
coat of the correct (EB5) Bright Blue Metallic paint. The body looks
immaculate and it starts with the, new for 1970, twin looped front bumper
that Dodge executives referred to them as the bumble bee wings. Within the
twin loops sits some Dodge badging, and four headlights. In the center of
the front end, the famous Super Bee logo is on the bottom of the hood. Make
you way up the hood and you'll find the functional ram air hood scoops and
hood pins. The hood scoops look fantastic with chrome tips and chrome 383
badging, and on both fenders you'll find the (L31) fender mounted turn
signals. Wrapping the trunk and quarters is the black bumble bee stripes
that contain Harvey Winn's famous Super Bee logo. On the rear bumper you'll
find more Dodge badging and another Super Bee logo.
Dodge offered three options for an engine in 1970, the first was a 383ci
Magnum rated at 335hp, a 440 Magnum with 390hp and a 426 Hemi capable of
425hp. Pull the hood pins and lift the massive hood, and you'll reveal the
original (E63) 383 big block Magnum V8 that is easily capable of laying
down plenty of rubber on the streets thanks to the 335hp. At the top of the
engine an orange air filter gives away what is beneath it with 383 Magnum
badging. The block, valve covers, and air filter cover are all painted in
orange and accent the blue engine bay very nicely. In front of the engine
is the 26-inch radiator that is responsible for cooling the 383 Magnum.
Bolted to the original block is the near bullet proof A-727 3-speed
TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
Put this true Coronet Super Bee on a lift and you'll see an underside that
is covered in flat black. The spent gasses from the 383 Magnum travel out
stock appearing headers and to dual Exhausts complete with an X-pipe and Magnaflow
mufflers that help create a great sound out the back of the car. The Super
Bee came standard with heavy duty suspension that included leaf springs in
the rear. It's pretty standard underneath besides where the previous owner
upgraded the brakes to Stainless Steel Brake Company's 4-wheel discs. In
front of those brakes are the 15x8 Chrome Magnum 500 rims that have been
wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A rubber.
Inside the car you'll find a correct (B7) Dark Blue interior that looks as
good today as it did when it rolled off the showroom. The blue vinyl front
bucket seat looks like it has never been used and is an amazing place to
log miles from. Above the seats, a taught blue headliner stretches the
length of the roof. In front of the driver is the "three on the tree"
controls for the transmission and an instrument cluster that includes a
150mph speedo, analog clock, fuel gauge, water temperature, oil pressure,
and voltage meters. Below the gauges the original AM/FM 8 track player is
still installed, however the owners opted to install a new AM/FM CD player
with remote controls under the dash. Behind the driver and passengers is
another bench seat. On the floor is blue carpet and blue floor mats to
finish off the look.
As we stated, originally Dodge built the Super Bee to be an affordable
muscle car option for the public. It was capable of running 14 second
quarter-mile times and was priced roughly at $3,000. Today this Super Bee
still as an affordable option if you are in the market for an incredible
muscle car from an era where pure muscle ruled the streets. Make sure you

person. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
133289 / 1969 Dodge Coronet A12 Super Bee
If you're looking for some old school Detroit metal that wraps some of the
nastiest muscle your money can buy in one of the best looking packages to
ever prowl American streets, this badass Mopar is your kinda style!
According to the story included with this rare Dodge's sale it began life,
like so many A12s, as a dedicated drag racer. The car would literally roll
out of the shop on Friday, make 10 second passes up and down the strip on
Saturday, and roll back into the shop on Sunday. Fast forward several
owners and many years later when, in the summer of 1985, a dedicated Mopar
fan picked it up for a grand total of $1500. As it sat, the car displayed
what was thought to be 23,000 original miles, was still decked in its
original blue and white race armor, and was a mess of broken body panels
and barely running mechanical pieces. Thankfully the skilled owner set into
a multi-year restoration that would begin with stripping the car's body
down to its original Bright Green Metallic finish, transition to salvaging
and rebuilding its many original parts, and end with a fresh combination of
correct green basecoat, black Super Bee markings and mirror-like clearcoat.
Pull this Dodge's famous stainless hood pins and you'll find a correct 440
cubic inch V8 which looks ALMOST as good as it runs. Professionally
rebuilt, fully detailed and ready for the strip, this accurately spec'd
monster block will take its driver from 'confident' to 'scared stiff' in
mere seconds! At the top of the 390 horsepower mill, a trio of
correct Holley 2-barrel carburetors is housed within a fully-functional
induction system that inhales today just as well as it did 43 years ago. At
the base of those carburetors, a correct Edelbrock aluminum intake rides
between correct heads and traditional stamped steel valve covers. At the
front of those valve covers, a reliable points distributor sends spark
through reproduction Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires. And at the
sides of that distributor, restored original Exhaust manifolds funnel spent gases into a
great sounding true dual Exhaust
Behind that thumpin' Chrysler RB block, a stout A833 4-speed twists an
original Dana 60 posi-traction rear end around big, 11 second gears. Below
that proven drivetrain, a heavy duty front torsion bar and rear leaf
suspension has been completely rebuilt to include a correct A12 K-member,
correct 'uneven' leaf springs and correct 11 inch brakes. Above that proven
drivetrain, over-restored floors have been layered in brilliant green
urethane and dressed with everything from a fresh stainless fuel tank to
correct undercoating and fresh stainless brake and fuel lines. Exhaust is handled by free-flowing 2.5 inch
pipes which jettison cooked dinosaurs via an H-style crossover, traditional
turbo mufflers and spotless stainless
tips. And power flows to the pavement through a fresh set of 15 inch steel
wheels which spin authentic looking F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports
around chrome lug nuts and gloss black paint.
Open this Coronet's rock solid doors and sit down inside a cockpit where
legendary Mopar power melds seamlessly with a no frills, no-nonsense
driving environment. It's nicknamed the 'taxi cab interior', and it's been
restored just as the factory intended: to provide the perfect combination
of striper car weight and big car durability. At the center of the floors,
rebuilt bench seats wrap firm padding and new frames in correct
reproduction covers. At the bottom of those seats, like-new carpet anchors
"Super Bee" stitched floor mats at the sides of a correct Hurst goose neck
shifter. In front of those seats, the car's expertly restored dash hangs a
full set of rebuilt Rallye gauges beside a correct Solid State AM radio
that's complete with Chrysler's super cool thumb-wheel knobs. And in front
of the driver, a correct three-spoke steering wheel spins a silver trimmed
horn button around a rebuilt steering column.
If you're in the market for some solid Mopar muscle that'll be a constant
source of pride and provide years of fun, this top notch Dodge is the car
for you! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more

If you're in the market for a solid, highly original muscle car that will
provide years of great weekend memories, this expertly restored Coronet is
the perfect choice. In fact, we would go so far as to say this is the flat
out nicest restored 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T we've ever seen and, as the
single largest retailer of classic Mopar muscle for six years running, that
says a lot!
Fresh out of a full redesign, the 1968 Coronet wore bulging fenders, faux
scoops and generally cleaner line work than its predecessor. This R/T wears
those design cues well, dressed in an even coat of Burgundy Metallic paint.
Underneath that paint, the arrow straight body is 100% Chrysler metal
reassembled with considerably more attention to detail than the assembly
With a such a great shell, finishing it with anything less than
show-quality would have been questionable at best. That's why you'll find a
healthy list of original and NOS pieces capping off this slick B-body. From
the black-out grille to the segmented taillights, every piece is show
quality and better than new.
Under the hood, the original 440 is still in place, cranking out 375hp
according to Dodge. The motor starts easily, idles well and sounds great
through a factory-style Exhaust
system. The bay retains an authentic look to go with its original block.
From the wrinkle finish air cleaner to the correct ballast resistor, every
piece is here and showroom fresh.
Underneath, a nicely detailed undercarriage with glossy Burgundy Metallic
floorpans comes into view. In the center, an era-correct Torqueflite
three-speed automatic applies power to the ground through an 8 ¾"
differential filled with highway-friendly 3.23 gears. The suspension
remains in its original configuration with torsion bars up front and leaf
springs out back. The chassis connects to the road through a set of fifteen
inch Chrysler wheels wrapped in a combination of BF Goodrich rubber.
Open the elongated doors and you'll be greeted by a showroom fresh white
vinyl interior. In the 1960s, Chrysler was still in their luxury phase and
it shows in the design of this cabin. While the fender tag calls for red
vinyl, it's hard to argue with the decision to swap it for a full white
interior. The bucket seats are firm and supportive and the AM radio still
pulls signal loud and clear.
With a great look, excellent execution and attention to detail, and the
original engine between the frame rails, this is one to hold on to, whether
you're into cruising or investing. If a Mopar B-body has been on your
wishlist, don't miss the chance to take home this awesome '68 Coronet R/T.

RK Motors Charlotte is unquestionably the home of the A12; you know, those
killer Super Bees and Road Runners with lift-off hoods, 440 Six Pack
engines, and four manual gears in the transmission. We've sold more than
just about anyone else, and our staff is comprised of experts who know
these cars inside and out and can tell from 20 feet away whether they're
correct. We've restored the two most valuable A12s in existence, the first
one off the assembly line and the famous Project Six Pack racer.
We're not alone in our appreciation of these amazing machines, either, and
nobody here at RK Motors Charlotte was surprised when the market for these
cars took a big jump skyward. Recent auction results show that even
non-numbers-matching A12s are red hot, with more than a few changing hands
for six-figure price tags. Even Sports Car Market magazine noted that at
$120,000, a non-numbers-matching car was priced "market correct." Now take
a moment to consider what a documented, 4-speed A12 with its original,
numbers-matching engine in a one-of-one color combination might be worth
Well, actually, you don't have to imagine it. RK Motors Charlotte is proud
to present this totally unique, correct, matching-numbers A12 restored by
our own craftsmen and ready to start collecting trophies at the very
highest levels. Seriously, have you ever seen an A12 with a white vinyl
top? I'm guessing the answer is, "No," because this A12 is a documented one
of one! And yes, we have a Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet on the car
to back up its unusual configuration, as well as the original Lynch Road
fender tag that is still on the car.
Ironically, while these cars were originally cheap and dirty racers for
guys with only 3 or 4 nickels to rub together, this one has had a fortune
invested in it to make it one of the nicest A12s on Earth. Panel gaps are
excellent all around, and even the lift-off hood fits better than they did
when they were new. We had this car parked next to the all-original
survivor A12 on the floor, and the difference between this paint and the
vintage 1969 stuff is mind-blowing. Don't get me wrong, original is cool,
but anyone who sees this car in person will understand that there's just
nothing like immaculate, deep, color-sanded and buffed urethane to make a
car look like a million bucks.
OK, so it looks nice. How does it run? Well, have a look under the hood.
That's the original, matching-numbers 440HP big block, fully detailed and
covered in matching Hemi Orange paint. Up top, there's a correct Edelbrock
Six Pack intake with three 2-barrel carburetors complete with the proper
choke and fast idle solenoid assemblies, all fed by that giant oval air
cleaner that inhales deeply through the scoop on the lift-off hood. The
battery's a group 25 reproduction item with the correct red caps, and note
that the alternator pulley is the correct 2-belt piece, even though these
cars never used the second groove. New cables, the correct PCV valve and a
rebuilt master cylinder add to the look, and it was assembled and painted
just the way the factory would do it, overspray and all.
Underneath you'll find some of the finest metalwork we've ever seen on a
car. Since this is an A12, after all, there's also a heavy duty 4-speed
manual transmission feeding a stout Dana 60 out back with 4.10 gears and a
Sure Grip limited slip unit. There's a new dual Exhaust system with all the correct hangers and
polished tips, rebuilt stock suspension, and fresh brakes all around.
Wheels are correctly stamped A12 steel units finished in basic black
wearing Goodyear Polyglas redlines as original.
A vast majority of these cars had black interiors, so finding one spec'd
with an original white interior is a very pleasant surprise. The black
carpets and dashboard keep it from being overwhelming, and all the soft
parts are new, of course. Rebuilt gauges, including the Tic-Toc-Tach, live
under a fresh dash pad, and tie in nicely with the restored steering wheel.
The white seats feature new foam over the original frames, covered with
exact reproduction seat covers that fit snugly and without the wrinkles you
see on lesser restorations.
Those of you who have admired some of RK Motors other restorations, well,
here's your chance to own an incredibly rare A12 that was restored by the
nation's foremost A12 authority. You'll blow people away at shows with the
unusual color combination, and I can almost guarantee nobody has ever seen
one like this before. The market is definitely on the move, and you can own
this correct, freshly restored A12 with its original, numbers-matching
engine for about what the other guys are paying for also-rans. Visit our
website at http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com now before someone else recognizes
that this is a rare opportunity!

When the pros at RKM Performance Center got their hands on the one and only
'Bengal Super Bee', the decision was made to put it through a deluxe,
no-holds-barred restoration that transformed it into the show-stopping
muscle car you see here.
The restoration began with a complete disassembly which involved all
original pieces being catalogued. Next, the car's tub was stripped to bare
metal and supplemented with a few small patches. Patched and disassembled,
the body was outsourced for a non-acidic chemical dip. Fresh from that dip,
that fuselage was completely submerged in E-coat and baked at roughly 400
degrees. Now protected from rust and weathering, the car's panels were hung
and laser straightened. Those straight panels called for a new coat of
primer, which was blocked out numerous times. The original floor-pans were
oversprayed to mimic a factory-fresh appearance, then satin clearcoated for
their protection. With those floors finished, it was time for a little
color-keyed body sealer. That sealer was topped with a smooth DBC PPG
basecoat and 2002 PPG clear. That clear was mirrored by roughly 80 hours of
blocking and buffing. And, to finish things off, we ignored the car's
original broadcast sheets by applying fresh Black C-stripes.
More popular than Chrysler's famed Hemi, and almost as feared, Dodge's 390
Six Pack powerplant was designed to be the industry's best combination of
comfort, streetability and big block performance. As with its body, this
Super Bee's correct 440/A833, 18-spline 4-speed drivetrain was completely
pulled apart and mechanically and cosmetically restored. It took us a while
but we located and restored a set of date-coded heads, a correct intake and
three 2-barrel carburetors. And then we threw in a barrage of parts
including: a new alternator, a new master cylinder, a new starter, new
wiring harnesses, new Exhaust
manifolds, a new air cleaner, a new radiator and a correct Air Grabber
Like that first class drivetrain, this B-Body's chassis was subjected to an
Exhaustive restoration. Aside from a
complete mechanical rebuild, work on the car's suspension began with a
freshly dipped, epoxy-coated and scuffed rear end that was sanded numerous
times to display a 'just from the factory' appearance. Opposite that rear
end, an original K-frame was dipped, metal-finished, sprayed in epoxy,
sanded, blocked and then sprayed in factory-correct Satin Black. The car's
control arms and steering components were all chemical-dipped, epoxied and
then finished to factory specifications. And everything rolls on
reproduction Rallye wheels, dent-free trim rings and meaty F60-15 Goodyear
Inside the car you'll find a correct Black and White interior that's
received a complete top-to-bottom makeover. New or restored items include
the headliner, dash, instrument cluster, seat covers, seat foams, shifter
ball, door panels, kick panels, sill plates and carpeting. And out back,
the trunk was properly restored with an original jack, fresh hardware and a
correct spare tire.
Well, there you have it. Fully documented and fully restored, this stunning
Super Bee is a magnificent showpiece that's suitable for any significant
Chrysler collection. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com to

David Freiburger's 1970 Super Bee Revival, Part 2
Hot Rod Magazine Editor In Chief David Freiburger has owned this 1970 Dodge
Super Bee since he was 15 years old. In 1995, it was restored in race trim
with a 484ci Dick Landy Hemi, then the car sat untouched for 20-plus years.
In Part 1 of this video, the HOT ROD crew jammed to get the car back on the
road in a week, then headed out late to drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas
for the Moparty at the Strip race. They also blew up the transmission on
the drag strip. Here in part two, watch as the guys road trip home from Las
Vegas with nothing but third gear in the Torqueflite.
