You had two choices to choose from.
A factory Advertisement for the 70 Superbee.
Here is the color breakdown for US sold cars.
These figures are based off factory percentages.
A 1970 Sublime Quartet!
The 2 door coupe continued in 1970. The standard rear stripe could be deleted, but you still got the Bee.
For 1970 you had two choices of stripes. Here is the "C" stripe on this gorgeous Burnt Orange Superbee. (Ken Bowser photo)
Here is the traditional Bumble-Bee stripe on another Burnt Orange car.
A Plum Crazy Superbee. One of the extra cost "Hi-Impact" colors available in 1970.
A (BL1) Beige Superbee at the 2000 Mopar Nationals. Only .6% or roughly 63 hardtops came this color.
The same Superbee at the 2001 Mopar Nationals. This car has a Burnt Orange interior.
A very sharp "Go Mango" Superbee!
One of the Hi-Impact colors.
It says "Super Bee" on the hood scoop.
A nice shot of the "C" stripe and back of the car. This one has the optional bumper guards.
Many people didn't like the front end design of the 70 models, but they do grow on you. I have decided they are kind of cool.
A Black Beauty!
This one has been painted orange inside the scoop. Notice the "Dodge" emblem in the grille. The grilles are blacked out with an orange accent stripe.
A good rear view showing a very nice tail-light trim panel.
A (FE5) Bright Red Superbee.
Looks like this one is wearing (EB3) Light Blue Metallic paint. The white offsets it very nicely.
Have you ever seen a "Panther Pink" Superbee? A mid-year introduced extra cost Hi-Impact color, only .2% or 7 coupes and .3% or 32 hardtops had it.
Another look at this Pink Bee. I have been told this is not an original Panther Pink car, but it still looks nice.
Factory photo of an original Bee.
They forgot the wheel centers...
A "Banana" Superbee. Another Hi-Impact color. This one has the optional rear wing spoiler.
A Dark Green Metallic Superbee.
(EB5) Bright Blue Metallic.
The "RED" Bumble-Bee stripe really sets this Superbee off!
The same car from the front.
A nice looking 70 Superbee.
A different shade of Green.
A nice looking Bright Red Superbee. It needs the wheel lip mouldings and the lighter argent silver wheel centers though.
A Black Beauty!
Sinister looking!
The Ramcharger fresh air box was black in 1969, and on some 70's.
The Ramcharger fresh air box was also orange on some 70's. Is this mainly from the Lynch Road plant? Let me know what color yours is and which plant your car was built at......
This is a really nice triple black Bee.
Black Superbee's seem to be quite popular, here is another.
A sharp looking "Plum Crazy" Superbee.
Gus in Indiana owns three Superbee's that he wanted to share with me, here are two of them.
Here are all three of them. He says he is very partial to the 70!
This one is actually a clone that he races. It has a 440 Six Pack with 727 and 4.56 gears, it runs 11.50 in the 1/4 mile!
This one is a real 440 Six Pack car and is well optioned. How many do you see? (Gus added the larger Six Pack emblems to the hood scoops, they're not original like that)
It has the extra cost Hi-Pact "Banana" paint, a black vinyl top, rear wing spoiler, C-stripe, Ramcharger fresh air hood, and rallye wheels.
The interior has some nice options too; bucket seats, console, pedal dress up trim, and "Tuff' steering wheel.
This Bright Red car is sharp with the white contrasting interior and stripe. It's a little plainer model with the dog dish hup caps, standard hood, and the base 383 Magnum engine.
Here is a closer view of the rear. I like how the white "C-stripe" brightens up the flanks.
Here is the interior with the standard bench seat and the 4-speed Hurst pistol grip shifter. It also has the optional sport "woodgrain" steering wheel and AM radio.
This is a good shot of the hood tachometer that was available from the Chrysler "Hustle Stuff" catalog. Special Thanks go out to Gus for these great pictures!
This one was at a local show.
It was restored very nicely.
A Burnt Orange 440 Six Pack.
This Hemi Orange car with contrasting white top, interior, and stripes is very sharp.
This triple Black Superbee was built at Los Angeles and is a genuine Red striped car. Thanks to Gus for the photo!
This Superbee was at the
Mopars on the Mississippi show.

This Sublime Superbee was at the
2001 Mopar Nationals.
Another Sublime Superbee at the 2001 Mopar Nationals. This one has white contrasting top, stripes, and interior.

2001 Mopar Nationals.
A very rare two-tone paint Superbee at the 2001 Mopar Nationals. It is (BL1) Beige with a (FT6) Dark Tan Metallic painted top.
A little closer look at this rare Bee. 2% or 211 hardtops, and 2.3% or 83 coupes came with two-tone paint.
Another look at this nice rare Bee.

A (FE5) Bright Red Bee with contrasting white top, interior, and stripes.
Another (FE5) Bright Red Bee! This one belongs to Andy C. who has owned the car for 18 years, and it only has 44,000 original miles on it! It's equipped with the "Ramcharger" fresh air hood and the "Hi-Performance" axle package - 3.91 ratio.
A nicely detailed 383 Magnum.
Another view of this (FE5) Bright Red Bee with a black interior and white stripes.
One more look.............Thanks Andy!
A Burnt Orange Superbee.
A Plum Crazy Superbee.
Brian sent me a picture of his (EW1) White coupe, which has a 383, 4-speed, radio deleted, bench seat black interior, black stripe, and manual steering & brakes. Thanks Brian!
Another White Bee.
This Bee belongs to Greg and it is coded for a V6F "Ledger Green" body side C-stripe! Which he has to install yet...
A sharp Black Bee in a nice show room setting.
Sorry for the small picture, but thought you would like to see only known BLUE "C" striped Bee! (in unrestored condition). V6B was also available on EB3, EB5, EB7, & TX9.

Since nobody has reproduced this stripe, George color matched some paint off a sample of the original stripe, that was still on the car.
He sent me a small piece of the original stripe, and I can say it looks to be right on. It's much closer than the so called "Ledger Green" stripe that has been called correct.
(V6F) Green body side "C" stripe. I like how it looks, and this was available on EF8, DY3, EW1, and TX9.
