To Bee or Not to Bee?
That is the Question!
Factory Advertisement for the 1969 Superbee and the "Ramcharger" fresh air induction system!
Another Factory Advertisement.
A nice Superbee with the optional "Ramcharger" hood. First available in 1969.
Another Superbee with the "Ramcharger" hood, which was standard with the 426 Hemi. The hardtop made it's debut in 1969. No convertible Superbee's were ever made.
The 383 Magnum was the standard engine, but you could upgrade to the "426 Hemi!" Here is a Black Beauty!
At midyear, Dodge introduced the ultimate Bee! The "440 Six Pack!" I really like this one.
Factory Advertisement for the Six Pack Superbee.
Here is the power plant in the 69 1/2 Superbee 440 Six Pack!
Another gorgeous Six Pack. This one has the optional rear quarter scoops.
Now this has to be a very "Rare" Bee! This is the only one I have ever seen with a ModTop!
Another look at this cool Bee.
I like this Hemi Superbee in Yellow with the dog dish hubcaps. This one belongs to Dino, and was featured in the October/November 1995 issue of Mopar Muscle magazine!
When was the last ime you saw a "White" Six Pack Superbee?
Here is a nice one from Ken Bowser. I don't believe the 383 fender emblems should be there on a car with the Ramcharger hood. The scoop will have a 383 emblem on it instead.
This one was at the Koller Dodge show several years back. I like this color.
This Six Pack Superbee was shot at the Mopar Nationals by Adam.
Another sharp Six Pack.
From Larry in Arizona.
This one comes to me from Ken Bowser. Another Black Beauty!
Yellow with a Tan vinyl top, and black BB stripe. A little different combination.
A Medium Green Metallic coupe. Hood pins became an option during the model year.
I really like this (R6) "Red" Superbee with White contrasting vinyl top, interior, and stripe! Without the "Ramcharger" hood, you got "383 Magnum" emblems on the front fenders. With the Ramcharger hood, you got a "383" emblem on the outside of both hood scoops.
Of course all 1969 Hemi Superbee's came with the "Ramcharger" hood, and had "Hemi" emblems on the scoops.
This Gorgeous Triple Black Superbee belongs to Dave in Michigan. Thanks Dave!
This is one of the new colors that became available in Mid-Year. Dodge called it "Butterscotch" and it looks good on this Six Pack Superbee. Courtesy Diego R.

This very sharp Superbee comes to me from Randy in snowy Maine. He says it is R6 Red with a red interior, black vinyl top, and white BB stripe. It is a 383 Magnum car with automatic trans. and 3.23 sure grip. Thanks!
Another picture of Randy's gorgeous 69 Bee! He has now installed the new reproduction wheel lip mouldings from Jack's Auto Parts.

This is a (B3) Light Blue Metallic car with the early recalled cast aluminum wheels. It is a 383 Magnum car with the Ramcharger hood, side quarter scoops, white interior and stripe.
A nice looking engine compartment.
The Charger dash was used in the Superbee. It had the all the gauges, 150mph speedometer, and an optional Tic-Toc-Tach. This car also has the optional sport woodgrain steering wheel, AM radio, and floor shift console. You can also see the red pull button cable for the Ramcharger hood warm air doors.
A good look at the rear of the 69 Superbee.
Another view.
Gotta love this Red interior! Standard bench seat, Hurst 4-speed shifter, sport (wood-grain) steering wheel, standard (charger) rallye dash, and an AM-8 track radio.
Here is that AM-8 track a little closer.

The rear wheel opening, this car appeared to have original rear quarters, and you can see the width of the lip. Reproduction quarters are very wide in this area, and need trimming down to look correct.

The only known Superbee painted (T7) Dark Bronze Metallic and having a (V8R) Red Bumble-Bee Stripe! It's coded on the fendertag, and is very close to my 70 R/T in Burnt Orange with a Red BB stripe.
This car was for sale, I hope it gets restored back to original.

When (V88) Bumble-Bee stripe was deleted, you got this on the rear quarter. I don't believe 383 cars had the chrome exhaust tips, 426 Hemi cars did. (I'm checking on this)

Mid-Year options for the 69 Bee were: (J45) Hood Tie Down Pins and (V21) Performance Hood Treatment. Only available with (N96) hood and only the scoops were black.
Many Spring Special cars, such as this one, had the (V21) hood treatment with black scoops.
The door panel on a (M6C) interior. Medium price class bucket seat cars had a nicer interior, same seats and door panels as the higher priced R/T. The plastic plug in the upper door frame should match the upper door frame color.


This is the door panel of a (H2T) tan bench seat interior car. The door panel has a slightly different design and does not have the wood- grain trim. Note the plug is also tan in the upper door frame. Door lock button should be interior color, and did you know they moved it forward on 1969 cars? 1968 doors had the button at the rear of the door.
Emblem on the front fenders when equipped with the standard power bulge hood.
