This 1969 Dodge Super Bee is an M-code (A12) example with the 440ci V8 and Six Pack carburetor setup, as well as a 4-speed manual transmission. Finished in Bahama Yellow, the car was originally purchased in Fremont, California in July 1969 and found its way to Michigan by 1973, where it was stored until early 2006.
An inspection was conducted in August 2018 by David Wise of MMC Detroit, who found that the car lacks its original engine but otherwise retains many of its factory components.
The primary paint color is Bahama Yellow, which was also known as Butterscotch. It was one of the first High Impact colors that Mopar offered and here is set off by a black hood and an original black tail stripe with a wheeled, helmeted insect in the Super Bee logo. This color was eventually assigned the EL5 paint code and appeared late in the 1969 model year. The special-order A12 option, which is highlighted by the triple carbs, became available in February 1969.Other A12 features include a matte-black fiberglass hood that has SIX PACK graphics on its scoop and is secured by pins in each corner but no hinges. This pillared coupe (code WM21) features pop-out rear quarter windows, and the body style was less expensive and lighter in weight than the available pillarless 2-door hardtop. Black steel wheels with chrome lugnuts and redline tires were also part of the A12 package. This car currently wears Firestone Wide Oval tires size F70-15.
The black vinyl interior features a bench seat and a floor-mounted shifter. The front seat has a tear in the cushion, but an uninstalled replacement cover from Legendary Auto Interiors is included in the sale. The gauge cluster includes a Tic Toc Tach tachometer/clock and a 150-mph speedometer. The 5-digit odometer reads 70,611 miles.
Cars with the A12 package were not offered with typical Coronet and Super Bee options, such as air conditioning, cruise control, or disc brakes.The original 440ci Magnum V8 is not present, and the Chrysler 440 in the engine bay was likely manufactured in 1976 or 1978 according to the Wise report. The same report indicates that the intake and exhaust manifolds are original to the car and that the trio of Holley 2300-series 2-barrel carburetors are period correct. The 440 Six Pack was originally advertised to produce 390 horsepower (gross) at 4,700 rpm and 490 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. The car was equipped from the factory with the A833 4-speed manual transmission. The Wise report provides pictures of factory stampings and various body tags.Chrysler built 1,907 Super Bees with the A12 option in 1969 and constructed an additional 1,412 similar Plymouth Road Runners that year. This car was built on April 26, 1969 and is one of 267 4-speed A12 Super Bee coupes.
