Classic Muscle: The 1969 Dodge Super Bee

It's Throwback Thursday; a day for us to reflect on a bit of automobile history. Today's featured vehicle is brought to us by @Dodge on Twitter.

Originally modeled off the Dodge Coronet, the Super Bee was created to rival the Plymouth Road Runner, because, at the time, Plymouth and Dodge were competing to become the performance division of Chrysler. Intended to be a lower price, but still powerful muscle car, the 7.0-liter Hemi V-8 could output more than 420 horsepower. The Super Bee, named after the original B-body platform, was resurrected from 2007 to 2009, and again in 2012. Later models featured a smaller, but more efficient V-8, producing in excess of 420 horsepower, from just six liters.

If this trip down memory lane has you craving your own bit of Dodge muscle, you're in luck. Route 46 Chrysler Jeep Dodge has the intimidating duo of the Charger and Challenger, including the 485-horsepower Challenger SRT 392. Visit us for a test drive, today!
