The Coronet was a car built by Dodge, part of the American automaker Chrysler, between the years of 1949 and 1976. It was a mid- to full-size auto that was in the executive car class, Type E. Over the years is was available as a 2 or 4-door sedan, hardtop coupe, convertible, and station wagon.
Early Coronets were large family cars. They were heavy and started out slow. Progressive years saw it equipped with engines with larger and larger displacement, which helped its speed and power. In 1968, it received a major redesign. It got a smaller, lighter body, based B-body platform, which it shared with the Dodge Charger. It started to be considered a muscle car.
One particular edition that is prized by collectors is the 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee 2-Door Coupe 383 V-8 Magnum. It was sold exclusively in North America. It was of the 2-door coupe body type, using RWD (rear-wheel drive), and a manual 3-speed transmission. It had a massive petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 6277 cm3 or 383 cubic inches.
The Super Bee had big horsepower as well, with advertised power of 250 kW / 335 hp / 340 PS and torque of 576 Nm or 425 lb-ft. Top speed was 216 km/h or 134 mph. It was a great car for drag racing. It had a 0-60 mph time of just 6.2 seconds and a 0-100 km/h time of only 6.5 seconds. It had a standing quarter mile time (402 m) of just 14.7 seconds. It ranks up there with the best muscle cars of all time.
