The Super Bee is a bare bones Dodge Coronet – made to go fast and made without any frills to keep the lowest price possible, but maximum power and performance is the goal. The Super Bee does have the Hurst Competition-Plus shift stick, a four speed and the dashboard instrument cluster is identical to the Charger. The optional hemi engine did kick the price price up more than 30 percent over the base price, which explains why the 1970 Hemi version is rare today-there were only 128 of them sold. The base engine is the 383 magnum for 335 hp ((249 kW), add the “six pack” for a boost or the 426 Hemi which is rated at 425 hp (317 kW). The 440 engine could only be ordered with the more uptown Coronet R/T.
