1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee

The original Dodge Super Bee was based on the design of the Dodge Coronet, designed as a two-door coupe, and was produced from 1968 until 1969. It was the company’s low-priced powerful muscle car, derived from the design of the Plymouth Road Runner, and retailed at USD$3,027 on the consumer market. 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.

The Super Bee, like nearly all Chrysler muscle cars of that era, was available with the Hemi engine; although, this option raised the price by 33%, and only 125 were sold. The 1968 model was only sold as a two-door coupe, with two engine options, the base 335 hp (250 kW) 383 Magnum, and the 426 Hemi, rated at 425 hp (317 kW). The Super Bee included a heavy-duty suspension, an optional Mopar A-833 four-speed manual transmission, and high-performance tires. Outside, a stripe (with the bee logo) was wrapped around the tail.

A hardtop version joined the existing pillared coupe body in 1969 and a new optional twin-scooped air induction hood, the “Ramcharger”, became available. This particular option was coded N-96 and was the counterpart to the Plymouth Road Runner’s “Coyote Duster” air induction hood. The “Ramcharger” hood featured forward-facing scoops that were more efficient than the Road Runner’s “twin vents”, as the latter merely lay flat on the hood and did not force air into the carburetor(s) as the Super Bee’s did.
