1970 Dodge Super Bee Plum Crazy

Jump to Images

The Super Bee was restyled for 1970, the last year that it was based on the Coronet. To differentiate it from the Coronet, the Super Bee did not get the dummy rear fender scoops as standard equipment. It also had horizontally divided (rather than individually segmented) tail lamps, and a new front-end that consisted of a twin-looped front bumper that Dodge Public Relations referred to as "bumble bee wings". Options included a hood tach and spoiler. Buyers could order the R/T type bumble bee stripe or pipe-shaped upper and lower rear fender stripes with a circular Super Bee decal between them. This car has the 440 six-pack engine with 4-speed transmission and pistol-grip Hurst shifter, and is finished in “Plum Crazy” purple.

This car will be offered at the Mecum Auction in Louisville, Kentucky September 8-10, 2016.
