Comments: Dodge watched as Plymouth launched their budget muscle car the Road Runner in the fall of 1967 as a 1968 model. Already upset that Dodge had coined the "road runner" name in a 1967 Coronet ad Dodge responded by launching its own budget muscle car. Based on the redesigned Dodge Coronet pillared coupe Dodge looked to its Scat Pack symbol and released its new model in the spring of 1968 as the Super Bee. The $3027 base price was $131 more than the Road Runner which used the same basic chassis. Curb weight was nearly identical and both used the same engines so performance was almost identical. The standard engine was the 335 bhp four barrel 383 cid V8 that borrowed cylinder heads camshaft and induction system from the Magnum 440. The 426 Hemi was the only engine option but at nearly $1000 more it clashed with the budget nature of the Super Bee and only 125 were ordered. The low price meant minimizing ammenities and although the Super Bee borrowed the Rallye gauge package from the Charger to edge out the Road Runner a tachometer was still a $38 extra. A heavy duty suspension brakes four-speed manual transmission with Hurst Competition Plus shifter and red-line wide oval tires were standard. The low price didn't mean low profile and the Super Bee had bumble bee racing strips circling the tail and a big Super Bee emblem hovering on the rear fenders. The grille was finished in black matte and the hood had a decorative power bulge. The wheel lips and the rear body panel were accented with thin bright moldings. Inside the Super Bee had door-to-door carpeting pleated vinyl seats and door panels and a standard bench seat.
