Although Chrysler made both a Dodge Super Bee and a Plymouth Road Runner version of the M Code A-12 in late 1969, the Super Bee A12’s are more rare. The car you see pictured here is a 1969 1/2 Dodge Super Bee A12 offered for sale out of Fort Pierce, Florida by a private seller. He says it is the only known A12 Super Bee to exist with this paint code, A4, and was ordered stripe delete. In collector terms it would be considered a one-of-one. In addition it is one of only 153 A12 Super Bees to be produced by Dodge. The A12 code cars came with the Lift-Off hood, perfect for race tuning, and the monster 440 ci Magnum engine with a 6 Pack of carburetors. The combination of power and torque was obviously designed for drag racing.
The Florida seller says his car has the numbers matching 440 Magnum that it was born with, although the automatic transmission is not the original to the car. “The car has all of its original body panels, plus the original interior except the headliner,” the seller stated. “I had the gauges all restored about 2 years ago and all of the dash trim.”
If you had to actually race both cars you’d probably pick this one over a Hemi car of that era. The 440 6 Pack car would be a little quicker off the line. Both would overtake their competitors in the final sixteenth of a quarter-mile. Next to an authentic Hemi Road Runner of the era, these A12 half-year production cars are some of the most sought after Mopar muscle cars of the era.
This car has been SOLD.
