The Super Bee was first released in 1968 and was based on the
Coronet. The idea was to create a powerful but affordable muscle
car and the result was a rebadged version of the Plymouth Road
Runner. The name came from the "B" body designation which was
assigned to Chrysler's mid sized cars. In 1971 the Super Bee moved
to the Charger platform like the car you see here. This fully
restored classic is a great example of Mopar muscle and the car
looks great. Mopars had quite a few bright brilliant colors to
choose from and this one was ordered in a GY3 Citron Yella paint.
There really is no sneaking up on people in this classic. If the
rumbling exhaust doesn't get their attention that bright paint
will. It features the Super Bee hood, rear spoiler and the sports
stripe package all painted in a nice contrasting matte Black. The
car was built to be driven but that doesn't mean they just ignored
the undercarriage because the solid floors are all painted to match
the top and everything was built very cleanly. It is clear the car
has been well cared for since new and continues to be well
maintained. The car rides on its original style wheels with Cooper
Cobra Radial G/T tires.
Under the hood the car features its numbers matching 383 Magnum V8
motor. The engine runs very well and has been built to look fresh
while still keeping that originality. The entire engine compartment
including the motor is nicely painted. It is topped with a 4 barrel
carb and its original Magnum air cleaner. Paired with the motor is
the Torqueflite A727 3 speed automatic transmission that shifts
smoothly. It really is a nice driver and also features dual
exhaust, power steering and power brakes. If you are looking for a
nice clean Mopar with documented originality that is also ready for
you to hop in and drive then look no further.

The interior has all been redone and features Black upholstery.
Everything looks factory fresh and original. From the Rally
instrument cluster to the AM radio no expense was spared it making
the car look like it just rolled off of the factory assembly line.
It has all of the original wood grain accents and trim which looks
good. There is one section where the upholstery isn't perfect that
is located in between the seat back and bottom and is only seen
when the seat is folded forward. Other than that every thing looks
great. In the trunk the car houses a spare, jack assembly and an
assortment of additional parts.
All of these old Mopars are pretty rare especially when you factory
in things like the numbers matching motor. Only 5,054 were made
originally and the number of those still in existence and in good
condition is significantly lower. Also factor in only 2,889 were
ordered with this drivetrain and only 123 in this color combo.
