The Super Bee was Dodge's answer to the budget-friendly Plymouth Road Runner. Like the Road Runner, a Hemi option was available but added an additional $700 to the cost — not exactly an alluring option for budget-conscious buyers — and only 125 were ordered.
Instead, most people opted for the 383-cid V8 engine, which produced 335 horsepower and could zip the Super Bee from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds.
The Super Bee was a stripped-down version of the Dodge Coronet, and while it was more exciting, it didn't match up to its Road Runner competition, and only sold around 8,000 cars in 1968 and 29,000 in 1969. The Super Bee was retired in 1971.
Like the 1965 Buick Skylark, the Super Bee is an affordable car for fixer-uppers, with low-grade models going for less than $20,000 while higher-quality models near the $100,000 range.
