A big block V8 Mopar is a rare treat, but when you’re looking to be a king amongst kings, you need this real-deal 1969 Dodge Coronet A12 Super Bee. Seriously rare (1 of 1,487) and carrying the famous Six Pack carbs on its updated 440 V8, you’re looking at a restored hardtop that’s true muscle car royalty.
The A12 was all about speed, so it’s on a diet of minimal options to keep the weight down. But you also can tell they couldn’t resist some muscle car flair. The factory-correct Hemi Orange is one of the most desirable colors to have, and so they took the time to give it a nice respray. That means when you take this out in the sunlight, it has the right shine to highlight the crisp sheet metal and the seriously sporty rear fenders. And everything from the shine of the bumpers, to the way the doors close with authority tell you this one has been given the right investments. But what you really love about this Super Bee is its dark side. The black vinyl roof and Super Bee stripe over the rear are factory-correct, and they have received the right attention so you’ll love showcasing them. Plus, this goes well with the black steel wheels. But the best black element is the hood. It’s the special lift-off lightweight unit that the factory gave these A12 cars, and it truly reminds everyone it’s a race car for the streets. Even the scoop on top looks like it wants to inhale all other vehicles as it passes them.
All the dark elements of the outside are also a nice preview of the factory-correct black interior. You can tell there have been more great investments in this one just by the way the carpeting, door panels, dash, and headliner all have a fresh feeling. So you’ll happily keep all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop to showcase this interior. And it’s this desirable hardtop body mixed with the A12 designation that makes it a rare one of less than 1,500 made! And you even have cool features like the rallye gauge package with tic-toc-tach.
Under the beastly hood is the best part of this whole package. It’s the 440 cubic-inch V8 with the legendary Six Pack on top. This is a 1970 block properly done with Hemi Orange paint on the motor, valve covers, and air element that correctly seals to the hood. So the appeal of this tidy engine bay goes well beyond the thunderous exhaust note it produces. And as you dig deeper, the best details are correct, too – including the triple set of dual carbs. Mopar had some of the stoutest transmissions around, so the Torqueflite A727 three-speed can handle all this extra muscle. You can tell there have been big investments in this special coupe, and it’s all about giving you the authentic experience of one of the best street-eating cars of the era. It goes for an accurate feel of the road, right down to the classic-style Firestone redline tires.
The sale comes complete with the right documentation, including the important factory buildsheet and restoration photos. So if you demand the best in seriously rare Mopar performance, don’t let this opportunity slip by.
