Bee’s Knees: 1970 Dodge Super Bee

1970 Dodge Super Bee

Mopar already had one affordable street bruiser – the Plymouth Road Runner, when they decided that Dodge needed something similar. So, the Super Bee was born. It was based on the same platform and offered the same engine options, but had a flavor all its own. The B-body designation inspired the name and the bee emblem was borrowed from from the Scat Pack logo. This particular example is pretty rough and even though it runs and drives, the seller admits that it’s not really road worthy. I can spot some serious rot in the rear quarters, but without any underside shots it’s hard to determine the full extent of the damage. The seller isn’t sure if the 383 V8 under the hood is original or not, but he original 4-speed transmission and Hurst shifter are there. This one is going to need a lot of work before it’s going to be collecting any honeys, but I’m sure it will be bee’s knees when it does! Find it here on eBay with the reserve met and less than a day to go!

    In 1970 I distinctly remember thinking the Super B/Coronet were funny looking with the split grille, and with some other cars styles I realized car styling was going downhill with the horsepower. They have grown on me, I had a 69 Bee that I prefer, as well as my brother in law’s 68, but I would take a 70 as well. I even still have the two Bees I took off the 69 before I hauled it to the scrapyard after wrecking it, unthinkable today but I had bought it for $500, and I pulled the engine/tranny to sell.

    Believe it or not these are my favorite. I always loved the split grill. I’ve owned several Mopars but never a Super Bee.

    I have always loved these if only for having the greatest shifter ever installed in a car.

    I see this like the Camaro earlier previewed. A rust bucket with paint all over it. More money and time than I personally would want to spend on it. Do I hear a California rust free car calling, even if it had no drivetrain and had to pay 2K to ship it I would be money ahead rather than buy this one.

    I remember 1970 Coronet 4 doors were used as police cars in Dayton, Ohio. So, when I see these they still look like police cars to me.

    I have always liked these. I remember a sublime green 440 4speed one of these east of Falconer NY I tried to buy. Wish I would have budged that 200 bucks. Lol.

    Also remember a b5 blue 440 6pack one In a farmers field un my home town that was torn in two by a maple tree @ 115mph.

    Mine was 1980 in Billings. White hat special. N96 for 1500. This is crap in my opinion.
