1963 Dodge Super Bee
This 1969 Super Bee is rostisserie restoration with Glen Glover documentation. It's an investment-grade Mopar that drives even better than it looks.
With all the wild color names Chrysler was using in the late '60s, this one has been repainted in its original Bright Green Metallic. When you see it in person, your eyeballs will be sore. Discovering a clean, un-restored, matching-numbers, high-performance Mopar is akin to a needle in a haystack, and as a result this one has had a complete rotisserie restoration that left no detail unfinished. The rust-free body shell was stripped to bare metal and rebuilt from there, an the fit and finish are worlds beyond anything Chrysler could have managed in 1969. Panel gaps are exacting, the doors close effortlessly, and the sheet metal looks like it just popped out of the presses moments before the paint was sprayed. The two-stage urethane captures the subtle gold undertones of the Gright Green finish, and it's simply dazzling in the sun. Super Bee graphics were added, including the blacked-out hood treatment, tail stripe, and a set of hood pins give it an appropiately racy look. The underside of the car is just as beautiful as the top, everything from control arm bushings, sway bars, to transmission mounts are new.
While they were built to be budget brawlers, this Super Bee managed to head out the door with a few optional upgrades, including a black bucket seat interior with center console. It also offers a correct Rally intrument cluster complete with fi=unctional Tic-Toch-Tach, a rare and disirable option all by itself. The Hurst shifter was standard equipment. Even the trunk is finished with a correct mat, full-sized spare, and a complete jack assembly.
It came from the factory with a A833 4 speed transmission. It now has a TK550 Tremec in it. The original 4 speen is with the car. It now also has 4 wheel disc brakes and power steering. The original AM radio is still in the dash however it's been upgraded and has a FM tuner in it now, looking completely stock. The engine is the correct 383 cubic inch V8 with a late 1969 casting date, which came out of the factory rated at 335 horsepower. Today, thanks to a few nearly invisible upgrades courtsy Wayne Calvert Racing Engines Denton, Texas, it's rated at 400+ horsepower that gives the Super Bee the punch that it should have had from the beginning. Spectacularly well-detailed, it wears a coat of Hemi Orange paint on all the vital parts, a correct cold-air intake assembly, and little stuff like the hoses and clamps are accurate. Spotless body-color floors frames the long-tube headers and X-pipe exhaust system, it carries 3.55 gears in the original 8.75-inch rear, and cool Magnum 500 wheels wear 235/60/15 Goodrich radials.
Dodge requested the car for 2 commercials commemorating Dodge's 100th Anniversary being shot at Gas Monkey. (That is it's ONLY connection with Gas Monkey) Click the link and you can see and hear the car....Thanks for taking time to look.
