1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee 340
What Makes This Car Special
The Dodge Charger (B-body) is a mid-size automobile that was produced by Dodge from 1966 to 1978 and was based on the Chrysler B platform.
The 1971 model year introduced the third generation Charger, characterized by a new split grille and more rounded “fuselage” bodystyle.
The 1971 Charger Super Bee was promoted in the line and production numbers of the Super Bee reached 5,054. 1971 was the first and only year that a small block engine (340 4-bbl) became available in the Super Bee.
We have a very rare 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee 340 here at Skyway Classics that has the VIN Tag and Trim Tag to verify that it was a real 340 Super Bee that came in red with the black interior and black vinyl top.

Our Bee has super-low production numbers with the 340 cubic inch engine (see engine block numbers pic) that was rated at 275 horsepower with the 4BBL carb, block, heads, and intake painted blue, fresh air grabber air cleaner assembly, black finned valve covers, headers sending the gasses back to the dual exhausts, automatic transmission, H.D. rear end, with all sitting in a clean and detailed engine compartment and chassis.
In ’71 the Chargers also received an all-new interior which in typical Mopar fashion was stylish and well-executed. Ours has a comfortable black high-back bucket seats sporting seat covers all in black, a comprehensive dashboard that includes a tachometer, and upscale wood grain appliqués.
It has a black steering wheel, automatic shifter in the woodgrain adorned console, pushbutton AM/FM radio, matching black door panels, carpet, and headliner complete the interior appointments making this a car that’s ready to show or drive at almost any level.
Bright Red was an unusual color in ’71 but it is correct on this Super Bee this is a seriously good-looking car. The long nose/short deck styling made popular with the pony cars translated well to the new Charger and this one looks fast just sitting still.
Loaded with all the eye-popping graphics available including the black side stripes and Super Bee graphics, and the fully functional N96 air grabber hood, and rare front spoiler/splitter.
There’s no color combination more fitting than a bright red and black stripe Super Bee such as this. Add in the satin black deck lid mounted wing, the matching chin spoiler, and racy hood pins, the taillights that are housed in a silver panel, and the two exhaust tips along with the aftermarket 5-spoke polished wheels and black sidewall tires make for a striking presentation.
The 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee 340 we have at Skyway Classics is a great example and about as correct as it’s gonna get. This great example is a rare example of the 1971 Charger Super Bee 340 awaiting to sting your competition. Now that’s as sweet as honey!
