426 Hemi Powers This 1969 Dodge Super Bee

Steven Symes

Take this Mopar out for plenty of tire-smoking fun.

Just looking at this 1969 Dodge Super Bee, which is being offered to the public through Premier Auction Group, produces some serious inspiration. This vehicle has the appearance of your quintessential American muscle car, thanks to simple lines and all the athletic extras. Pull up anywhere with this bad boy and anyone even remotely interested in America steel will be salivating.

This ride isn’t just about looks, because it has a rebuilt 426ci Hemi V8 engine with fuel injection. That’s a nice trick to have up your sleeve. And while these old American muscle cars can be a handful to control, this one comes with an automatic transmission, simplifying things quite a bit. The Wilwood front disc brakes and power steering also keep everything in check. This is a more accessible way to get on a first name basis with your tire shop of choice.

Back to the looks, because this car has that in spades, the Blue Metallic exterior looks fantastic paired with the White vinyl hardtop and rear bumblebee stripe. The large hood scoop signals to everyone this isn’t your average car, and smaller details like the hood pins are there for enthusiasts to notice. The addition of Styled Steel Rally wheels with plenty of chrome is a flashy and yet very tasteful move, while BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires provide the right level of grip for a car such as this.

While performance is most definitely front and center with this Dodge, the Blue interior has some additional attributes. Bucket seats up front and a center console are nice for comfort, as is the aftermarket air conditioning. All kinds of correct details abound, from the factory gauges to the amber lights on the side of the center console which light up the footwell when either front door is open. Super Bee rubber floormats are also part of the deal, keeping the carpet clean.

Super Bees are iconic muscle cars which always brighten up any garage they join. If you want to put this one in your collection, register to bid on it through Premier Auction Group.
