For Sale: 1970 Dodge Coronet in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

In 1970, the Dodge Coronet/Super Bee twins got an all-new look, and the horsepower was still as strong as ever. So this 1970 Dodge Super Bee maximizes everything you really love. It's got a mean-as-midnight style, and the motor is a professionally built massive dual-quad Hemi V8. It is a detailed restoration of a proper classic blacktop burner, right down to the dog dish hubcaps.

Straight lines are especially critical on Mopars of this era, and you can see from the unbroken curves along the flanks that the bodywork has been well done. But the sheet metal is only half of the story. The trim tag tells us this was a true Super Bee born in the ultra-desirable TX9 black. So they made sure to give it a quality respray later in life to make sure this still has an excellent gloss in the sunshine. Today you will find micro-scratches and other small blemishes from being responsibly enjoyed, because after all, a car like this belongs out on the streets every Saturday night. The upgraded dual-scoop Ramcharger hood, wide exhaust tips, and dog dish hubcaps with Goodyear Polyglas tires really give this an awesome classic Mopar muscle feel. And it's always awesome to see a Super Bee with bumblebee racing stripes painted on the rear - especially in the bold red.

The interior continues the dark feeling of quality. The door panels, headliner, carpeting, and dash all have the impression of a quality investment. And there's just something extra cool about two wide rows of bench seats when you have such detailed upholstery. The full interior wants to give you a fresh and clean style that reminds you of a time capsule. It's in the details, right down to the smooth wood-like trim and the AM radio that's still there for display. But there are a few of the right additions. The Mopar branded oil and temp auxiliary gauges and matching large tach should really clue you in that this one has been given some serious investment to maximize the muscle car feeling.

When it's time to go to the car shows, we know you'll be spending all of your time with the hood up. That's because within the dark engine bay lies a bold orange beast. Not only is the 426 cubic-inch V8 a Mopar legend, but this one was rebuilt for serious performance by Mopar legend Dave Dudek. This Hemi motor was bored out to a monster 496ci . All that distinct orange work on top of the hood tells you those are functional fresh air hood scoops, and they feed a dual four-barrel carburetor setup. The full power package is said to make a street-eating 650 hp and 570 ft-lb of torque. And the fresh presentation of the undercarriage tells you that this one has the strong components to handle the power. It's set up like a true classic quarter-mile king, and so the Torqueflite three-speed now has a reverse manual valve body, and it feeds a 4.10 limited-slip rear end for confident take-offs. And because we know how to stop much better today than back in the day, there are now Wilwood front disc brakes.

The '70 Super Bee is a single-year style. Plus, the pillared coupe style makes this nearly three times rarer than the already rare hardtops. And it makes for a stronger body for performance duty, too. So when you can find an example that was made to be stunningly beautiful and stunningly powerful, you know it's an opportunity you can't let get away. Call now!
