  • Vehicle Overview

    Inherited from my Father, who bought this 1969 1/2 "Mid Year" A12 "440 Six Pack" Dodge Super Bee new for a little over $4,200 off of the lot after returning from the Army during the Viet Nam war. I actually rode home from the hospital in this car that November of 1969. It's had ONE re-paint in 2005, retains it's Factory matching "440 HP" Block and TCI built "Hemi 727" transmission. It's definitely had it's days of 1,320 feet! (1/4 Mile runs). These particular Dodge Super Bee, as well as (Plymouth's) 69 1/2 "A12" Road Runner" would only be built from March 1969 through April 26, 1969. A total of 661 Automatic 440 Six Pack "Bees" were built. 216 were V2 "Hemi Orange", 18 were ordered with Bucket Seats and the center Console (C16 Option) and only 4 left the Lynch Road Assembly Plant ordered with the 8 Track a.m. radio. This is one of those four. The 4 speed bench seat was far more popular back then. However the automatics usually turned a quicker E.T. easily beating any 2x4 barreled 426 Hemi car of same weight. These cars were Purpose Built, to "Go in a Straight Line, as fast as Possible" then shut it down. You got NO Power brakes, discs, nor Power Steering. Driving one of these Monsters IS a workout. At a "Curb Weight" of only 3,240 lbs, they're actually LIGHTER than today's Dodge Challenger or Chargers. And I've yet, to be passed by one. Motor has had a recent rebuild, being a factory "A Stamped" .020 Overbored block at (443 C.I.D.) the last machine shop visit took an additional .010 out of the bores, now at a 444 C.I. Keith Black Cyl heads, a .292 @ .500 "Comp Cams" Adjustable Rocker Arms, Tubular Push Rods, solid lift ported/polished OEM aluminum Edelbrock Intake, Dana 60 4:10-1 Factory Axle package still bolted up. Car last dynoed out at little over 688 BHP. And it's still 3,400 lbs with ME in the seat. Cannot drive it ANYWHERE, wihjout the young & people over my age just stare. Mopar's aren't for everyone, but if you own one like this? Or a cousin of it? You are your own "Club"! Car currently has ALL 3 NEW HOLLEY Carbs atop that 440. A 0-4144-(350 cfm) with a NEW 4365 on both ends of it. Sucking a massive 1,350 CFM. Oh, this car, 6-8 M.P.G. Maybe it's "Gallons Per Mile"?

    Keep it as OEM Stock as possible. It sees a few shows and of course STILL takes lunch money. Car's been garaged all of it's life.
