1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee Additional Info:

27,369 original miles. Documented with original build sheet. Known ownership history. High-quality restoration in original colors. Correct throughout, very fast but surprisingly civilized. The performance car that doesn’t make compromises.
Easy to spot with its painted black wheels and black fiberglass lift-off hood, this A12 happens to be the rarest of the bunch: a 2-door “post” sedan with a bench seat. See, this is the one that the guys who were actually going racing built. The 2-door post was the stiffest and lightest, which was obviously key on the strip. And who cares about a bench seat? Being a car that spent most of its life on the track meant no winters, no rain, no dicing with amateurs in traffic, so the sheetmetal and bodywork is in fantastic condition with no replacement panels. Decoding the fender tag, you’ll see it was originally F6, which is indeed the bright Spring Green on it today. It looks awesome, but isn’t at all subtle, so you’ll have to be ready for the attention. The black hood features big, red SIX PACK lettering so no fooling the guy in the lane next to you, and that hood scoop is big enough to be a garage in Europe. A white bumble bee stripe around the tail is a great touch and since we’re skipping subtlety anyway, why not?
The black vinyl interior is all business, and if you’re worried about luxury and A/C and a killer stereo, well, the A12 isn’t your sort of car anyway. In fact, this interior is beautifully trimmed with a lot of originality and remains quite correct. Factory Rallye Gauges look bright and crisp and they all work properly. The Music Master AM radio works properly, too. Obviously the trunk is massive, with what might just be the original spare tire still stashed up there on its own shelf. It also includes a correct jack assembly and a reproduction mat. Looking underneath, there is no sign of rust or accident damage and the trunk extensions are in excellent condition.
The only engine available with the A12 option package was the 440 cubic inch “Six Pack” V8, rated at 390 horsepower. This is a warranty replacement block (which most of them are, given how these cars were used) and has been rebuilt to stock specs and highly detailed for show. The Six Pack air cleaner dominates and the surround that seals it to the unique A12 lift-off hood is a little crude, but this was a race car so nobody really cared. Hemi Orange paint really pops against the green engine bay and the little stuff is correct: hose clamps, clips, and markings were all accurately reproduced to give this car a factory look. The radiator is freshly re-cored, carburetors have been rebuilt so it starts easily and idles well, and for something designed to race, it’s surprisingly docile. Stock exhaust manifolds actually flow almost as well as headers without the headaches, so they left them in place. Going down the road, it’s easy to drive and remains very well behaved thanks to expert tuning by a guy who knows these cars inside and out.
Now check out that undercarriage—this car’s racing days are long behind it, but the floors have never been cut or patched, the rockers still show original spotwelds, and the suspension is highly detailed. Manual brakes with the drums painted red were the only choice on the A12s, so don’t complain about the lack of discs—that’s how they came, period. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and is always ready to serve up a quick downshift, and a Dana 60 with 4.10 gears and a Sure Grip limited slip was likewise standard equipment. This one has a set of milder 3.54 gears that make it a much better street car yet still entertainingly fast. A reproduction exhaust system sounds suitably muscular and offers correct chrome tips under the rear bumper. And again, all the factory markings and decals have been accurately reproduced here. Correct H-code steel wheels (unique to the A12s) are fitted with G70-15 Goodyear redline tires so it looks very much as it would have in 1969.
Documentation includes the original Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet, reproduction window sticker, and owner’s manual.
You’ll never see a car with this kind of single-minded dedication to performance come out of a major automaker again. The A12 remains special among Mopar fans and it stands out among all the other B-bodies you see at shows. And this one remains remarkably civilized, very easy to handle and still ferociously fast. The beautiful restoration, excellent documentation, and ownership by a Mopar expert all add up to a car you can enjoy immediately. Call today!
