1969 Dodge Super Bee
The 1969 Dodge Superbee vehicle is often times referred to as the 1969 Dodge Super Bee Six Pack as well. No matter what you call this car, one thing is for sure: it was a popular ride upon being released, and is considered a classic in today’s automotive world.
To make this car one of the best, Dodge took Mopar’s 440 cid Magnum V8 with 375 horsepower and hopped it up just a little bit. In other words, this was more than just your basic V8 – even though that may have been enough to get people talking anyway. They decided to replace the single Carter quad with three Holley two barrels. This change, as well as a few others, helped to boost performance in the Dodge Super Bee to 390 bhp.
Standard on the 1969 Dodge Super Bee was a Hurst four speed. On this car, TorqueFlight was a popular option – but that was just about the only one. Dodge did not allow for cruise control, air conditioning, or disc brakes on the 1969 Super Bee. While this may seem a bit strange when compared to today’s cars, it was easy to see that Dodge was simply trying to keep this car as a performance machine.
The 1969 Dodge Super Bee Six Pack came with a V8 horsepower engine (440 cid). Along with this, the name was put on the outside on both sides of the hood. To get into the Six Pack you had to pay an extra $463. This was approximately $500 less than what was paid to get a Hemi engine. It goes without saying that this engine was not as fast as the Hemi. That being said, it could keep up until 70 miles per hour or so.
The 1969 Dodge Super Bee had a Hemi grade suspension – this was all part of the muscle car feel. With this suspension, handling was very good for a car of this era.
The 1969 Dodge Super Bee had a wheelbase of 117 inches; weight of 4,100 pounds, and a base price of $4,300.
Dodge only produced 1,907 1969 Super Bees. With such a small number of these cars on the road, there is no wondering why they are so popular among collectors today!
