in the spring of 1968, the Super Bee was a budget muscle
car sold by the Dodge Division of Chrysler. With a base
price of $3,027 the Super Bee offered buyers an
affordable high performance Mopar. The base engine was a
383 four barrel cid v8 rated at 335 hp, the 426 HEMI was
also available for an extra $1000.
The Super Bee
featured a heavy duty suspension and brakes, a four-speed manual
transmission with Hurst Competition Plus shifter, and redline wide
oval tires. On the outside the super bee featured racing strips
circling the tail with a big Super Bee emblem on the rear fenders.
The Super Bee's hood featured a decorative power bulge. The Dodge
Super Bee was a direct competitor to Plymouth's Road Runner with
both using the same basic chassis and engine and weighted about the
same. The Super Bee was also offered in 1969, 1970 and offered on
the Charger platform in 1971.
In 2007 a new Super Bee model was offered, based on the Dodge
Charger SRT-8 and painted in special "Detonator Yellow". Only 1000
were Super Bee's were built in 2007. Dodge would continued to offer
the limited edition Super Bee for 2008 and 2009. The Super Bee would
return for 2012 powered by the 392 HEMI engine and offered in
Stinger Yellow or Pitch Black. Own a Dodge Super Bee?
