According to the story included with this rare Dodges sale it began life, like so many A12s, as a dedicated drag racer. The car would literally roll out of the shop on Friday, make 10 second passes up and down the strip on Saturday, and roll back into the shop on Sunday. Fast forward several owners and many years later when, in the summer of 1985, a dedicated Mopar fan picked it up for a grand total of $1500. As it sat, the car displayed what was thought to be 23,000 original miles, was still decked in its original blue and white race armor, and was a mess of broken body panels and barely running mechanical pieces. Thankfully the skilled owner set into a multi-year restoration that would begin with stripping the cars body down to its original Bright Green Metallic finish, transition to salvaging and rebuilding its many original parts, and end with a fresh combination of correct green basecoat, black Super Bee markings and mirror-like clearcoat. Pull this Dodges famous stainless hood pins and youll find a correct 440 cubic inch V8 which looks ALMOST as good as it runs. Behind that thumpin Chrysler RB block, a stout A833 4-speed twists an original Dana 60 posi-traction rear end around big, 11 second gears. Below that drivetrain, a heavy duty front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension has been completely rebuilt to include a correct A12 K-member, correct uneven leaf springs and correct 11 inch brakes. At the sides of that drivetrain, exhaust is handled by free-flowing 2.5 inch pipes which jettison cooked dinosaurs via an H-style crossover, traditional turbo mufflers and spotless stainless tips. And the big engines power flows to the pavement through a fresh set of 15 inch steel wheels which spin authentic looking F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around chrome lug nuts and gloss black paint. If youre in the market for some solid Mopar muscle thatll be a constant source of pride and provide years of fun, this top notch Dodge is the car for you!
