1969 Dodge Super Bee “M” Code 440-6
Why This Car Is Special
One of the fastest muscle cars ever made was the 1969 Dodge Super Bee A12 with the “M” code (WM23M9A270877) 440 cubic inch engine sporting three performance carbs and featuring a lift-off fiberglass hood, and we have a stunning one here for sale at Skyway Classics.
The origin of the name, “Super Bee” started out as a “B” Body designation of Chrysler’s mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner and Charger. Plymouth’s Road Runner sales were enough to have Dodge Division General Manager, Robert McCurry, request a similar model from the Dodge Styling office.
Senior designer, Harvey J. Winn, won a contest within the design branch with the name “Super Bee” and a new logo design based on the Dodge “Scat Pack” Bee medallion became a reality.
The A12 was all about speed and was on a diet of minimal options to keep the weight down.The special lift-off lightweight fiberglass lift-off hood with the scoop on top on the car is reproduction but the original hood comes with the car too. Check out the chrome hood pins that secured the hood to the body and it also has the lifts to hold it up when at shows.
The engine in our Super Bee is a M-Code date coded 1969 440 cubic-inch V8 engine with the legendary Six Pack on top.This engine has the correct Hemi Orange paint on the block, valve covers, and air element that correctly seals to the hood.
On top is the famous triple Holley carbs on the Edelbrock hi-rise intake that gave it the name “Six-Pak.” Backing it up is the equally stout Mopar Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission that can handle all the power as well as power steering and power brakes, and a limited-slip Dana 60 rear end.
The white interior features factory bucket seats and black carpet with the stock dash and all the factory gauges, AM/FM stereo radio, as well as the iconic pistol grip shifter in the factory center console.
The Super Bee had a better quality interior than a comparable Road Runner back in the day, and you can tell it with all the period-correct features, like the insignia trim on the front bucket seats, pillarless hardtop, steering wheel and seat belts.
Our 1969 Super Bee has had a full rotisserie build on the whole car. The body for the 1969 model year brought few modifications but a new grille with center divider and longitudinal taillights shows off the great orange paint on its all original sheet metal and classic muscle car lines on ours.
It rides on the factory correct black painted steel wheels with the right chrome lug nuts with Firestone Red Line front and rear performance tires just like it had when it was new.
The black vinyl roof and Super Bee stripe over the rear are factory-correct, and they have received the right attention so you’ll love showcasing them.
The sound is great with the headers flowing into the dual exhaust system and believe me it can back up the look and sounds when you open up those three carbs and feel the power kick in.
This 1969 Dodge A12 Super Bee “M” code 1969 440-6 we have here at Skyway Classics is one of the ultimate muscle cars that was restored and could be the pinnacle car of your collection.
This 1969 Dodge Super Bee is very collectable and a rare hardtop that is becoming more valuable every day.
