In 1971, Dodge moved the Coronet to a four-door platform, and the Super Bee name was assigned to the just-redesigned Charger. This is one of only 69 V-code Charger Super Bees produced in 1971 with the automatic transmission. Sold new at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge, it is well documented with the window sticker, bill of sale, advance dealer shipping notice and order form. The driveline consisted of the final-year 440 Six Pack engine, rated at 385 HP with a trio of Holley 2-barrel carburetors atop the intake. Factory electronic ignition, dual exhaust with bright tips, and the trapdoor-style Ramcharger hood with hold-down pins make it scream. Behind this is the column-shifted TorqueFlite automatic transmission, while the 4.10 Super Track Pak added a Dana 60 Sure Grip rear end, power front disc brakes and better cooling equipment. New for 1971 was the Rallye suspension with sway bar, and this car has power steering as well. The color chosen was Bright White Metallic with black longitudinal striping plus the Super Bee hood logo. Inside is a black vinyl bench-seat interior and the Super Bee dash appointments with a Solid State AM radio. Other exterior components include the rear spoiler, roof-rail drip moldings, color-keyed racing mirrors, a black vinyl top and a Mr. Norm’s decal on the decklid. Of course, the 440 Six Pack hood callouts and little “bee” decals complete the signature look. In keeping with the “less-is-more” theme, this car has body-color-painted steel wheels with standard hubcaps, which ably support the Goodyear G60-15 Polyglas GT tires that help make the Super Bee a great all-around package. Dodge let the name disappear with the option list, but the Super Bee is still seen as a respected, skilled stinger to the very end.
