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.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/n3bfolj 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.
