1970 Dodge Super Bee

1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee
This is the Dodge version of the Plymouth Road Runner. It was slightly heavier, better equipped and more expensive than the Road Runner. 1970 is the only year that the Super Bee had its own distinctive look (shared with other 1970 Dodge Coronets). The 1968 and 1969 Super Bees looked very similar to the 1968 and 1969 Plymouth Road Runners and the 1971 Super Bee is just an options package on the 1971 Dodge Charger. This “horse collar” front end was only available in 1970. At first I like many others did not like the look of this front end but it really grows on you and now I find it uniquely attractive – it looks muscular and powerful and it is very distinctive – no other car except for its 1970 Coronet siblings looks anything like it. The engine options are similar to Plymouth Road Runner – 425 horsepower 426 Hemi, 390 horsepower 440 Six Pack and the base 335 horsepower 383 Magnum. The 1970 Super Bee with either the 440 Six Pack or the 426 Hemi is the quintessential American muscle car.
