Family owned for nearly 30 years, a nut and bolt restoration was recently completed. Pro paint, pro mechanicals and a new gauge package showing just 442 miles, she’s simply a new car with absolute old school appeal.
Purchased in the early 90’s by the brother of the current Owner out of Edgerton, WY, she was driven, enjoyed and in need of a complete rehabilitation. Starting in 2017, the work to rehabilitate was extensive and thorough. New body panels replaced old, new motor, new running gear and new suspension. New interior and components. She’s just done and done right. Located in Evansville, WY, she comes with a clean and clear title in our Owner’s name.
Lemon Yellow was professionally prepped and applied by a local body shop. No expense was spared, as the body was stripped to metal. Any and all issues were addressed and brought back to the lemon delight. Air induction or “Ramcharger” dual hood scoops start the muscle car process. All chrome was either buffed to perfection or replaced. The glass is noted as grand and the windows all function properly. The car, she sits on old-school Cragars for a complete classic finish.
Black vinyl upholstery is noted as new oem for the seats. Door and quarter panels have been replaced, too. Headliner is original and in great shape. Steering wheel is original as are the dash and controls. New gauges were installed during her reconstruction and bring classic Mopar to the driver. Encapsulated clock surrounded by factory-style tach is just era cool.
This Bee is powered by an era correct, not numbers-matching, 383 cid V8 powerhouse. Complete rebuild with all new internals, and now carrying electronic ignition and cooled by modern radiator and electric fans, she is noted as an ultra-strong performer. Backing is the classic heavy-duty 727 Torqueflight transmission, built to handle the modified motor. At the rear is a Mopar 8 ¾ differential containing 3.73 gears and a ‘posi’ traction third member. Brakes are the factory drums at each corner and they are rebuilt and functioning perfectly. Front suspension components have been addressed through and through with new original equipment parts.
A thorough and exhaustive review of this vehicle was performed by a third party inspector. He found her to be in excellent mechanical condition, as described in a dry, boring get-the-job-done manner. No flaws were noted in the test drive, no emotions in the report either – and he just got done driving a monster machine. Cosmetics were noted and very good, with the Inspector working hard to find any and all challenges. Items noted in his ‘red’ checks consistently carried one word – light. Really, really a nice report written on a grand car.
The Super Bee, Dodge’s answer to Plymouth’s Road Runner, producing a basic muscle car on Mopar’s mid-sized “B” platform, aka Super Bee. Not exactly a twin of the ‘Runner, Bee’s were actually a bit longer and carried more custom features like machined and chromed medallions, fancier tail lighting and grill, raising the base price above those beep-beep brothers. Today, the Mopar B body is simply classic. Slightly larger than Pony rides, yet respected when running light to light. All Super Bee’s had big blocks in them, so there was no denying that when said light turned green, your package had best be prepared to perform, as you know a Mopar will.
