For Sale: 1969 Dodge Coronet in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Everyone was building muscle cars in 1969, but Mopar elevated their game to an entirely different level with cars like this 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee. Bargain-priced with big power and killer looks, they could be just about anything a buyer wanted, and with a big block under the hood, there wasn't much else on the street that could hang with the big, bad 'Bee. This sizzling Burgundy-over-White hardtop has been turned up to '11' in the looks department and is powered by a pro-built 383 V8 stroked to 468 cubes that now generates 550HP and other-worldly 625 lb-ft of torque. If you're looking for a whole lot of vintage 'Go-Fast' and off-the-charts curb appeal, this real-deal Super Bee is your ticket to the big time.

A vivid shade like this is exactly the type of color you choose when you want to get noticed, and what could be more fitting for a Dodge of this era than the slick Burgundy paint on this beauty? An incredible amount of prepping and workmanship went into its application, so the top driver-grade paint is in great form, with that deep, shiny, and lustrous look usually reserved for cars that have just emerged from the paint shop. Sure, there are some signs use, most of which are reserved to some light chipping on the edges of the hood and some light surface scratching from countless car washes, but a buff-and-wax would easily restore some former glory. Nevertheless, it's still presents very nicely in person and the bodywork underneath is laser-straight with uniform panels, doors that fit flush, and great gaps throughout. An imposing fiberglass hood was added during the build, featuring a big scoop and pins that preview the monster underneath, and it matches the side scoops in the fenders that accentuate this Mopar's muscular curves. Like all the best-looking Chryslers from this era, the decal package tells the story of the car, although the painted-on, black 'Super Bee' decals around back are somewhat subdued - letting that laser-straight bodywork and gorgeous paint do the talking. As you'd expect from a restoration of this caliber, all the finishing touches have been looked after - the blacked-out grille and matching tail panel are crisp, clean rubber trim surrounds all the windows and the body lines are precise, allowing the doors and decklid to open and shut smoothly. '383' fender badges and classic 'Super Bee' insignia fore and aft celebrate this A-Body's pedigree, and the bright chrome bumpers, flashy stainless around the grille and windows, and oversized Foose wheels all add to the high-impact look.

While they were built to be budget brawlers, this Super Bee keeps it all business with a handsome leather interior that was restored when the paint was done a few years back. Period-perfect white upholstery covers the bench seats front and back, matching the ornate door panels that feature bright polished accents that really pop inside the cabin. Plush black carpets that line the floors are protected with red Super Bee embroidered floormats, and the contrasting white headliner above keeps things bright inside and matches the beautiful seat covers. Mopar's expansive dashes were always a bit non-descript from the factory, so a custom Billet Specialties steering wheel was added to spice things up a bit. Factory gauges ahead of the driver are all still in place, but with the added firepower under the hood the builders wisely installed a trio of auxiliary gauges to help keep an eye on the car's vitals. This Super Bee was all about performance, so like most Mopars you won't find a long list of amenities but the second you hear that big engine fire up and that exhaust starts to cackle, none of that will matter. The cabin is comfortable and highly functional, and although we'd probably give the seats a better detail, this Super Bee comfortably seats six, so bring the whole crew. Out back, the giant trunk was fitted with a burgundy carpet and has enough space to carry all your car show goodies and then some.

Although this Super Bee was originally born with a 383 V8, the 383 Stroker V8 under the lift-off hood is far from stock, and that's a good thing. Professionally built, the big block features forged internals, solid lifters, a custom cam, shaft-mounted rockers, and Edelbrock aluminum heads that result in an impressive 550HP rating and an impressive 625 lb-ft torque curve. The block fires to life thanks to a full MSD ignition, gobbles up fuel and air via a giant Holley 4-barrel atop an Edelbrcok aluminum intake, and exhales through a set of long-tube headers at the flanks. It's incredibly fast, with plenty of power up and don the throttle, yet it's still manageable enough to handle the rigors of regular driving. With less than 500 miles on the rebuilt engine, it's sorted, tuned, and ready to rock, and the engine bay is nicely detailed too, with HEMI orange paint on the block, shiny Edelbrock valve covers, and a really cool aluminum air cleaner up top, while the giant aluminum radiator and electric fan keep the big motor nice and cool. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission features a Gear Vendors overdrive rated to 1200HP and spins an equally built-up 8 � rear end, so the entire drivetrain was thoughtfully put together to handle big power, and the new power steering box and upgraded Wilwood front disc brake set-up makes the big car very manageable out on the road. The H-Pipe Flowmaster dual exhaust system underneath sounds downright sexy, while the flashy Foose chrome wheels wrapped in grippy Nitto rubber finish off the look perfectly.

Nicely finished and turnkey ready, this real-deal Super Bee can be driven and enjoyed while it appreciates in value each year. Call today!
