1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee OrngBlk
You have to love the bold colors on this one...maybe the wheels not so much. Probably the most distinctive element is the air induction hood...very popular at the time. Dodge was famous for their graphics, and this car is not exception.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lammvou 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 horsepower, 440 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 assembly. 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 Polyglas GTs. 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.
