This 1968 Dodge Coronet Super Bee is a highly documented factory
426 Hemi car. It has been thoroughly restored, and the ultra-low
odometer is even believed to reflect the total actual mileage. So
if you're a collector, you already know this golden Mopar is the
This coupe looks stunning in its factory-correct gold, and it's
part of a comprehensive restoration. We have receipts totaling over
$110k, and that means a car with body lines approaching perfection.
And they took the time to get the details right with the power
bulge in the hood, sculpted fenders, wide dual exhaust tips, and
classic redline tires. Plus, the iconic Super Bee rear stripe
package done in black really makes this look like a bumblebee. And
we understand exactly why there would be this much time and money
invested in this car. There are some Mopar legends about amazing
cars that were only made by the handful, and this one is exactly
why. 1968 was the debut year for the Super Bee, this now-iconic
muscle car was a mid-year offering that was on the mid-level
Coronet 440. Most people didn't know that it could be optioned for
some seriously large motors, and/or opted for the more expensive
and premium Coronet R/T and Charger. So just looking at the 426
Hemi and trans configuration, this Super Bee is believed to be less
than 100 ever made! And that's before you even look at colors or
small option packages that make this even rarer. In fact, these
were the kind of cars that basically got snuck out the back door.
The story we're told on this one is that it was ordered by a
Indianapolis area drag racer who wanted the big motor in the Super
Bee's lighter, and thus, more competitive package.
The black bench seat interior keeps this car's correct racer
attituded, and just like the exterior, it has been restored to a
time capsule standard. Nice upholstery, good carpeting, taut door
panels, a great headliner, and a smooth dash are all part of the
little details that make this award-worthy (we're even told it was
finalist for Good Guy's Muscle Car of the Year.) Mopar steering
wheels always just seem to have an excellent grip, and beyond that
is a Rally instrument package with large speedo and desirable
tic-toc-tach. A light racer keeps it light on options. However, it
was ordered with an AM 8-track radio, and this one is still ready
to play your Steppenwolf carriages.
We don't have enough space to describe how excited we get when we
see such a well-presented 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 under the hood.
And this one has a terrific story to go with it, too. We know this
was born a Hemi machine, and that it saw plenty of Saturday night
blacktop battles. It's believed that the original 426ci blew up in
the mid-to late 1970s. The motor was sent to a local shop for
repair. Sometime after that, the original owner sold the car but
retained the racing wheels and tires. So this Super Bee actually
spent decades on jack stands until around 2017 (that's why the low
mileage is also believed to be original.) Now that we all
appreciate these muscle Mopars for the big $$$$$$ classics they
are, there was a hunt was on for the original motor. But they
didn't have to look very far. A 426 Hemi with the same needed
repairs was still in the same shop from all those years ago, and
since everything on this car has styled so local up until this
point, it's hard not to believe this is the original powerhouse.
The motor was bought, rebuilt, and showcased in this engine bay.
And we have the receipts documenting this. The restoration on this
one is so comprehensive that not only does the engine bay look
stunning, but also the undercarriage is exceptionally detailed with
simulated factory markings. Even as meticulous as this car looks,
it's also still a racer at its heart. It has stout pieces like A727
Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and
a Mopar 8 3/4 rear end with 4.56 gears for quick take-offs.
This is the Mopar that steals the show. So that's why you need
terrific documentation, too, including the original window sticker,
factory buildsheet, owner's manual, build receipts, restoration
photos, and Galen Govier documentation. Yes, you've found the Holy
Grail Mopar, but act fast because this is no longer a secret. Call
