With its numbers-matching drivetrain boosted by some great modifications and a great-looking appearance that comes via its vibrant and well-applied paint job, this 1968 Dodge Coronet Super Bee is ready to supply some serious Mopar muscle car magic for its next lucky owner.
Dodge undertook a redesign on several of its '68 offerings like this one that were as major as nearly any we've seen. Though certainly a capable and agile looking muscle car in its previous incarnation, the results of Dodge's efforts yielded a car with an undeniable appeal and a look we associate far more closely with the MoPar moniker. Though fairly substantially-sized, its flowing lines and fairly marked windshield give the Coronet a decidedly agile look. This one is a fine representative of the model, with a vibrant Hemi Orange color replacing its original yellow hue, a fresh black vinyl top, and the distinctive Super Bee emblem and twin black stripes faithfully recreated on its tail. It's only about 450 miles past a thorough restoration that obviously included a precise reassembly - this is a very well-aligned car, with nice uniform gaps between body panels, doors that open and shut smoothly, and clean bumpers both fore and aft.
This interior is definitely an environment you'd enjoy spending time in. Some changes have been made that really revitalize its look, but they've all been applied with a very era-appropriate sensibility that's resulted in a very authentic overall appearance. Low-backed, black vinyl buckets sit in place of the original bench to provide a decidedly more performance-oriented vibe, and both they and the bench seat in back are just as fresh as you'd expect with so little use. A fresh expanse of black carpet sits underneath. You'll see plenty of reminders that this Coronet is configured for driving enthusiasts. As you slip into the driver seat and grip the 3-spoke steering wheel, a Hurst shifter sits at the ready within easy reach, and no fewer than six gauges sit inside the instrument cluster, all easily readable through their still-clear lenses, while an AM radio sits front and center on the dash. One great by-product of the Coronet's generous size is interior space - there's all kinds of room inside for passengers, and plenty of luggage space in the trunk, where a full-sized spare also sits safely with a jack nearby, should the unforeseen ever happen.
The original 383 Magnum engine sits underneath the hood, paired with the same 4-speed manual transmission it began its service with. There's plenty of power at your disposal here, as the Magnum was rated at 335hp in stock form to begin with - though many Mopar aficionados say that figure seemed very conservative - and this one's sporting a set of aftermarket heads. The entire drivetrain is in the fine form you'd want from a frequent driver, with the 383 running smooth and emitting a great throaty sound as you shift through the gears. An amply-sized radiator sits up front, accompanied by a pair of electric fans, to keep engine temperatures down in more demanding conditions. The original Sure-Grip rear end is also there with 3.23 gears. This classic Dodge muscle car sits on a set of 17" REV wheels, wrapped with Sumitomo HTR radials.
