The Super Bee was an American muscle car built by Dodge between 1968 and 1971. It was based on the Dodge Coronet 2-door sedan. It was a rebranding of the low-cost, high-performance Plymouth Road Runner. The “Super Bee” name referred to the use of the B-body used for the Road Runner and Charger. The weight and engine was the same as the Road Runner, so the performance was nearly identical.
Its low cost didn’t mean it was shy looking. It had bumble bee stripes and a large bee graphic above the back bumper. The grill was painted a matte black and it had colored moldings above the red-line wheels and on the rear body panels. The hood had a decorative bulge that hinted at what power was lurking underneath.
The Super Bee used the 335 bhp four barrel 383 cid V8 engine, which used components from the 440 Super Commando. It came with a choice of a 4-speed manual or 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic. For about $1000 more, one could get the famous 426 Hemi engine rated at 425 hp. Since it was marketed as a bargain priced car, only 125 were ordered, by customers, with the Hemi engine.
Top speed was 134 mph and the 0-60 speed was 6.1 seconds. The Hemi engine had a top speed of 142 mph and it had a 0-60 speed of 5.2 seconds, making the Super Bee a favorite of drag racers.
