This Super Bee has been hit hard by the rust stick. It’s described as a “solid southern project car” which is another way of saying, “of course it’s got rust. It’s from the South!” It originally rolled off the assembly line clad in Lime Green paint and a four speed manual and a 383 under it’s Ramcharger hood.

Unfortunately the power plant that currently sits under the hood isn’t the original 383 and it doesn’t have any transmission; original or otherwise. The interior is totally shot, but at least most of it is still there, including the front buckets, console and Tic-toc tachometer. The tach alone is worth $250-350.

But then there’s the rust… and lots of it. Basically the entire floor system needs to be replaced. Ditto for the trunk floor and gutters. The quarter panels need patch panels at minimum, but more realistically they need new skins.

The 1968-1971 Dodge Super Bee‘s are cool, but this one may be more work than it’s worth. The 335 hp 383 cid is no slouch, but it’s not a 440 Six Pack orĀ 426 HEMI which both could also be ordered under the Super Bee hood. A skilled body man could certainly take this Mopar on, but if you were paying shop rates for the rust surgery it probably doesn’t pencil out as a good restoration candidate.
