1969 1/2 Dodge A12 Super Bee
1969 1/2 A12 Super Bee - Rarest of the Rare, 4-Speed, Fully Restored, Amazing!!!
The original Dodge Super Bee was based on the Dodge Coronet two-door coupe, and was produced from 1968 until 1970. It was Dodge's low-priced powerful muscle car and a rebadged version of the Plymouth Road Runner.
The origin of the name, "Super Bee", has its basis in the "B" Body designation pertinent to Chrysler's mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner and Charger.
Although the two cars are similar in external appearance, the Super Bee was slightly heavier by 65 LBS and rode on a 117-inch wheelbase compared to the Road Runner's 116 inch wheelbase.In addition to minor external differences, such as larger rear wheel openings, the bumblebee tail stripe, fancier grille, and the taillight ornamentation, the Super Bee also used actual diecast chrome-plated "Bee" medallions. These three-dimensional medallions were prominently mounted in a raised position in the grille/hood area and the trunk lid/taillight area of the car throughout the first three years of production.
A "six-pack" (three two-barrel Holley carburetors) version of Dodge's 440 cu in (7.2 L) engine was added to the offering list mid-year rated at 390 HP and 490 lb⋅ft of torque.
The option code for this was A12, which changed the 5th digit of the VIN to M. These special order 1969 1/2 Dodge Super Bees are known as A12 M-code cars.
The A12 package also equipped the cars with a Dana 60 axle with a 4:10 gear ratio, heavy duty automatic or a 4-speed manual transmission, and a 'lift off' flat black scooped hood. Other components to the A12 package included heavy duty internal engine parts, black steel rims with high performance G-70 15" tires, and heavy duty 11" drum brakes. Only 1,907 A12 M-code 440 Six Pack 1969 1/2 Dodge Super Bees were produced.
There is no question that the A12 is one of the most sought after Super Bees and this stunning example, finished in F6 Bright Green Metallic is as good as it gets. It is even more so RARE as a 4-Speed car as only 267 of the 1907 units produced were 4-Speed.
Of course there aren't too many things cooler than a lift off hood making A12's instantly recognizable and desirable.
Under single ownership for over 30 years and restored by renowned Mopar Collector and Aficionado Tim Welborn, this A12 underwent a no expense spared restoration at Tim's highly regarded and award winning restoration shop Mopar Obsessions. Fully documented with a GALEN REPORT, restoration photos and dealer collateral, this A12 will not disappoint.
