1969 Dodge Super Bee "M" Code 440-6
Why This Car Is Special
One of the fastest muscle cars ever made was the 1969 Dodge Super
Bee A12 with the "M" code (WM23M9A270877) 440 cubic inch engine
sporting three performance carbs and featuring a lift-off
fiberglass hood, and we have a stunning one here for sale at Skyway
The origin of the name, "Super Bee" started out as a "B" Body
designation of Chrysler's mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner
and Charger. Plymouth's Road Runner sales were enough to have Dodge
Division General Manager, Robert McCurry, request a similar model
from the Dodge Styling office.
Senior designer, Harvey J. Winn, won a contest within the design
branch with the name "Super Bee" and a new logo design based on the
Dodge "Scat Pack" Bee medallion became a reality.
The A12 was all about speed and was on a diet of minimal options to
keep the weight down.The special lift-off lightweight fiberglass
lift-off hood with the scoop on top on the car is reproduction but
the original hood comes with the car too. Check out the chrome hood
pins that secured the hood to the body and it also has the lifts to
hold it up when at shows.
The engine in our Super Bee is the original M-Code correct date
coded 440 cubic-inch V8 engine with the legendary Six Pack on
top.This engine has the correct Hemi Orange paint on the block,
valve covers, and air element that correctly seals to the hood.
On top is the famous triple Holley carbs on the Edelbrock hi-rise
intake that gave it the name "Six-Pak." Backing it up is the
equally stout Mopar Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic
transmission that can handle all the power as well as power
steering and power brakes, and a limited-slip Dana 60 rear end.
The white interior features factory bucket seats and black carpet
with the stock dash and all the factory gauges, AM/FM stereo radio,
as well as the iconic pistol grip shifter in the factory center
The Super Bee had a better quality interior than a comparable Road
Runner back in the day, and you can tell it with all the
period-correct features, like the insignia trim on the front bucket
seats, pillarless hardtop, steering wheel and seat belts.
Our 1969 Super Bee has had a full rotisserie build on the whole
car. The body for the 1969 model year brought few modifications but
a new grille with center divider and longitudinal taillights shows
off the great orange paint on its all original sheet metal and
classic muscle car lines on ours.
It rides on the factory correct black painted steel wheels with the
right chrome lug nuts with Firestone Red Line front and rear
performance tires just like it had when it was new.
The black vinyl roof and Super Bee stripe over the rear are
factory-correct, and they have received the right attention so
you'll love showcasing them.
The sound is great with the headers flowing into the dual exhaust
system and believe me it can back up the look and sounds when you
open up those three carbs and feel the power kick in.
