1969 Dodge Coronet

The Super Bee which was introduced mid-1968 now became a model in the Coronet Deluxe line up and is equipped with a 383 Magnum engine, 4-speed manual transmission and bumble bee stripes. 

The middle of the line for Coronet was the 440 which included all of the same options as the Deluxe plus polished aluminum wheel lip moldings and carpet.  For the top of the line, the Coronet 500 came with a wood-grained instrument panel as well as map, ashtray and glovebox light.

The Coronet R/T came as a two-door hardtop or convertible and features a 440-cu.in. V8 engine with dual exhausts and a choice between a 4-speed manual transmission or 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic.

A trailer towing package was available on models with a 225 Six or Hemi V8 and can haul loads with a grossweight of 2,000lbs.
