Dodge Super B

One would probably not guess it by the name, but the Dodge Super Bee was a limited-production muscle car from Chrysler's Dodge division produced from 1968 through 1971. The Super Bee mascot was resurrected for the 2004 Dodge Ram Rumble Bee model, and also for the 2007 Dodge Charger Super Bee. The original Super Bee was based of another model, the Dodge Coronet. It was a 2-door model and took the title as being the company's low-priced muscle car, which was the equivalent of the Plymouth Road Runner. It was competitively priced at $3,027. It was also available with the Hemi engine, but this option raised the price by 33% and thus only 125 were sold. The Super Bee included a heavy-duty suspension, an optional Mopar A-833 four-speed manual transmission, and high-performance tires. The exterior was tagged with a stripe that had a bee logo and was wrapped around the tail. A new 2007 Super Bee model was introduced at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. This model is based on the Dodge Charger SRT-8, and in the spirit of the name, uses special "detonator yellow" paint with flat black hood and fender decals. This is slated to be a limited edition car, with only 1000 to be made in 2007. The Super Bee name turned up somewhere else as well. Around 1970, the Mexican-market Dodge Dart had a Super Bee package that were based on the Mopar A platform until 1976, and the F platform between 1977 and 1979. This car has actually done surprisingly well given the ridiculous name. It has actually probably helped the model that most have been made in accordance with a 'limited edition' mindset, for if they weren't rare it seems they would not be given the attention that they do ' because certainly no one takes them seriously.
