This fully restored 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee hardtop is currently up for grabs on the popular automotive auction site, BringATrailer.com. The car has undergone an extensive restoration, which started in 2017 and has been upgraded with several aftermarket components that have significantly enhanced its performance and appearance.
Under the hood, the car is powered by a 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 crate engine, paired with a Tremec TKX five-speed manual transmission and a Moser Engineering limited-slip differential with 3.91:1 gearing. The engine was installed by Dodgemaster Automotive of Lexington, South Carolina, while The Hot Rod Barn of Joliet, Illinois, installed the transmission and differential. Additionally, the engine has been fitted with Hooker BlackHeart headers and exhaust, a Griffin aluminum radiator, a Mopar air filter, and a high-performance oil pump.
The car’s exterior is painted yellow and has 392 badging on the front fenders, black Super Bee tail stripes, and a black rear wing. Yellow dual air scoops, HEMI badging, and securing pins are on the hood. The vehicle has dual exhaust outlets, chrome bumpers, aftermarket headlights, and split front grilles. The tires are M&H Racemaster drag-radial tires with dimensions of 185/75 up front and 325/50 out back, mounted on 15-inch Billet Specialties wheels. All four corners of the vehicle have cross-drilled and slotted brake rotors and the back has Wilwood calipers.
Procar Scat front bucket seats and a rear bench with black trim have been added to the vehicle’s interior. Driving is made comfortable by the Vintage Air climate control system, which is also featured on the center console and dashboard. Additionally, there are manual windows, floor mats with the Super Bee logo, and a pistol-grip shifter. The AM/8-track radio has been improved, so it is now Bluetooth and USB compatible, FM capable, and connected to aftermarket speakers. A 160 mph speedometer, an 8k rpm tachometer, and gauges for voltage, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level are all part of the Dakota Digital instrumentation that is fronted by the wood-rimmed steering wheel.
The car is being sold with a service manual, receipts from 2021, photos documenting the engine’s construction, two keys, and a South Carolina title in the seller’s name. The digital odometer reads 17k miles; the owner has added about 1,000 miles.
This modified Coronet Super Bee illustrates a vintage muscle car modernized with performance parts and modern technology. The vehicle is a desirable addition to the collection of any classic car enthusiast because it skillfully blends retro design elements with contemporary engineering.
Bidding for the car ends on Saturday, April 29th at 4:30 p.m. EST. Simply go to the car’s dedicated auction page.
