TONS OF ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION, #'S MATCHING 383, ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER
Everyone was building muscle cars in 1969, but Chrysler elevated their game to an entirely different level with cars like this 1969 Dodge Super Bee. Bargain-priced with a long, long list of options, they could be just about anything a buyer wanted (and could afford), and with a big block under the hood, there wasn't much else on the street that could hang with the big, bad 'Bee.
For collectors, nothing adds value like documentation, and this is one of the most heavily documented Mopars we've featured in a long time. It's also nicely restored to mostly original condition and still carries its original, numbers-matching 383. The code F6 Bright Green Metallic paint has been duplicated using modern finishes, so it looks great and will be easy to maintain, and there's no question that the bright hue attracts a lot of attention! Add a set of correct bumble bee stripes around the tail and almost everyone will recognize this as something special on the street. Options like the side scoops on the quarter panels were purely for show, but that's what Chrysler did best in the '60s and it's part of why these cars are so popular today. The Super Bee was a bit more upscale than the Road Runner, with its shiny chrome bee emblems and on this car, the details like the bumpers and grille are in great shape.
The interior was originally equipped with a bench seat, but during the restoration it received a set of comfortable buckets that were covered in reproduction two-tone green covers to capture the vibe of the originals, if not 100% of the look. These chairs are actually quite comfortable and supportive, and with that cue ball shifter between them, there's no question about this car's street cred. Factory A/C is a pretty big deal in a car like this, which was ostensibly designed for budget-minded buyers, but looking over the long list of options on the window sticker, it looks like this one was built without price as a primary consideration. There's a tic-tock-tach in the dash and a factory AM radio high in the center, so they resisted the urge to upgrade everything, which is smart on a car with such a strong pedigree. The cavernous trunk was big enough to haul your gear to the track on weekends, and this one carries a correct mat and full-sized spare on a color-matched wheel.
The matching-numbers 383 cubic inch V8 has a few subtle upgrades that add power but don't call a lot of attention to themselves. Among them are a bigger cam, a performance intake manifold, and a set of heads to help it breathe a bit better (the original pieces are available, please call for details). I like the way Hemi Orange engine paint looked against the Bright Green engine bay and a few chrome dress-up pieces add a little flash. That big A/C compressor dominates the engine bay, but underneath you'll find long-tube headers, a recent Flowmaster exhaust system, and the original rear end. Flashy Cragar wheels look great against the high-visibility paint and wear 215/65/15 front and 295/50/15 rear white-letter radials (the original wheels are also still available).
Documented with the original window sticker, manuals, purchase agreement, and more, this is a fantastic Super Bee that can be driven and enjoyed while it appreciates. Call today!
