Michael spared no expense to have Rocket Restorations completely resurrect the originality of this B-Body. Michael even had renowned Mopar restoration expert Dave Wise take a pass over the it and recreate all of the factory inspection marks. The immaculate condition of the car runs true down to the H-code 15x7 color-matched steel rims with Redline tires.
Though a latecomer to the race and never ultimately outselling the super-successful Road Runner, the Super Bee stayed true to the bare-bones spirit of its beginnings. Dodge engineers never offered the Super Bee as a convertible, saying "the convertible is on its way out. They are leaky and drafty, and government regulations are killing them." Even a topless Charger concept was built for the auto show circuit, but the Super Bee retained its rigid roof and no-frills/all-thrills design. To most Super Bee enthusiasts, that's the way it's meant to be.

Deep Purple played on an eight-track...
Deep Purple played on an eight-track is something every youth should hear at least once. The factory AM/eight-track cassette player is still pretty cool.
