Description
This 1968 Dodge Coronet Super Bee is a highly documented factory 426 Hemi car. It has been thoroughly restored, and the ultra-low odometer is even believed to reflect the total actual mileage. So if you're a collector, you already know this golden Mopar is the gold standard. This coupe looks stunning in its factory-correct gold, and it's part of a comprehensive restoration. We have receipts totaling over $110k, and that means a car with body lines approaching perfection. And they took the time .....
to get the details right with the power bulge in the hood, sculpted fenders, wide dual exhaust tips, and classic redline tires. Plus, the iconic Super Bee rear stripe package done in black really makes this look like a bumblebee. And we understand exactly why there would be this much time and money invested in this car. There are some Mopar legends about amazing cars that were only made by the handful, and this one is exactly why. 1968 was the debut year for the Super Bee, this now-iconic muscle car was a mid-year offering that was on the mid-level Coronet 440. Most people didn't know that it could be optioned for some seriously large motors, and/or opted for the more expensive and premium Coronet R/T and Charger. So just looking at the 426 Hemi and trans configuration, this Super Bee is believed to be less than 100 ever made! And that's before you even look at colors or small option packages that make this even rarer. In fact, these were the kind of cars that basically got snuck out the back door. The story we're told on this one is that it was ordered by a Indianapolis area drag racer who wanted the big motor in the Super Bee's lighter, and thus, more competitive package. The black bench seat interior keeps this car's correct racer attituded, and just like the exterior, it has been restored to a time capsule standard. Nice upholstery, good carpeting, taut door panels, a great headliner, and a smooth dash are all part of the little details that make this award-worthy (we're even told it was finalist for Good Guy's Muscle Car of the Year.) Mopar steering wheels always just seem to have an excellent grip, and beyond that is a Rally instrument package with large speedo and desirable tic-toc-tach. A light racer keeps it light on options. However, it was ordered with an AM 8-track radio, and this one is still ready to play your Steppenwolf carriages. We don't have enough space to describe how excited we get when we see such a well-presented 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 under the hood. And this one has a terrific story to go with it, too. We know this was born a Hemi machine, and that it saw plenty of Saturday night blacktop battles. It's believed that the original 426ci blew up in the mid-to late 1970s. The motor was sent to a local shop for repair. Sometime after that, the original owner sold the car but retained the racing wheels and tires. So this Super Bee actually spent decades on jack stands until around 2017 (that's why the low mileage is also believed to be original.) Now that we all appreciate these muscle Mopars for the big $$$$$$ classics they are, there was a hunt was on for the original motor. But they didn't have to look very far. A 426 Hemi with the same needed repairs was still in the same shop from all those years ago, and since everything on this car has styled so local up until this point, it's hard not to believe this is the original powerhouse. The motor was bought, rebuilt, and showcased in this engine bay. And we have the receipts documenting this. The restoration on this one is so comprehensive that not only does the engine bay look stunning, but also the undercarriage is exceptionally detailed with simulated factory markings. Even as meticulous as this car looks, it's also still a racer at its heart. It has stout pieces like A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and a Mopar 8 3/4 rear end with 4.56 gears for quick take-offs. This is the Mopar that steals the show. So that's why you need terrific documentation, too, including the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, owner's manual, build receipts, restoration photos, and Galen Govier documentation. Yes, you've found the Holy Grail Mopar, but act fast because this is no longer a secret. Call today!
