The 1969 Dodge Super Bee was a muscle car produced by the Dodge division of Chrysler Corporation. It was based on the Dodge Coronet and was offered both as a two-door coupe and a two-door hardtop.
The Super Bee is a classic muscle car that is highly sought after by car enthusiasts. It was first introduced in 1968 as a performance version of the Dodge Coronet, and was produced until 1971 (although in the final year it used a Charger as its base).
The 1969 Super Bee featured a distinctive “bumble bee” stripe on the rear quarter panel, which gave the car its name. The stripe was available in a variety of colors, including black, white, and red. The car also featured a blacked-out grille and tail panel, as well as a “Super Bee” emblem on the fenders.
The rear also featured the new for ’69 revised taillights.
The Super Bee featured a powerful engine, aggressive styling, and a sporty suspension, making it a formidable competitor on the drag strip.
Inside is an all-vinyl bench seat interior and Rallye instrument cluster package (A62). Bucket seats were also available as a $100.85 option along with a center console priced at $54.45.
The Super Bee came with a number of performance options including Rallye Suspension, a special handling package that included HD torsion bars, Firm Ride shocks, say bar and SHD rear springs.
Under the hood sits the 335 horsepower 383 cubic inch V8 that came as standard on the Super Bee.
Despite its success, the Super Bee was only produced for a few years. The model was discontinued in 1971, along with many muscle cars due to rising insurance costs and changing consumer preferences. Today, the 1969 Dodge Super Bee is considered a classic muscle car and it remains a highly desirable classic car for enthusiasts and collectors.
Total production of the 383 equipped Super Bee coupes during the 1969 model year was 7,122 but just 3,427 were fitted with four-speed manual transmission.
