AJ's Car of the Day 1970 Dodge Super Bee 425hp / 426 Hemi

Car: Dodge Super Bee 425hp/426 Hemi

Year: 1970

What makes it special: It was a limited-production Muscle Car from Chrylser's Dodge Division, produced from 1968 to 1971. For the 1970 model, the Super Bee was given a cosmetic redesign including a new front-end that consisted of a twin-looped front bumper that Dodge Public Relations referred to as "Bumble Bee wings". Also new to the '70 model was an available "C- stripe" variant of it's famed "Bumble Stripe," in addition to new high-back bucket seats and a "Pistol-Grip" Hurst shifter on 4-speed models.

What made it famous: It's 425 hp, 426 cu in V8. ( 'Nuff said.)

Why I would want one: It's definitely in any Muscle car fan's "Top 10 of cars to own." The fact that it's equipped with a famed 426 Hemi / Pistol-Grip 4-speed manual transmission only adds fuel to the fire of desire. I'm especially feeling those awesome dual hood mounted air scoops as well.

Fun fact: Rumors have circulated regarding the production of four concept Super Bee convertibles. The whereabouts of one 1970 Coronet Super Bee Hemi Convertible painted in "In-Violet" is known to exist in Ontario Canada, while the other three cars are unknown.
