1970 Dodge Coronet SUPER BEE

1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee Hemi XRT series magazine and TV car. { referring to Magnumforces XRT line of beefier parts} This car was owned by Ron Jenkins and owner of Magnum Force, he and the crew of Monster Garage along with Jesse James Built this car. The car was built to race a Milwaukee Tool battery powered Bel Air on a episode of Monster Garage, which airs on the Discovery channel. Discovery wanted the Bel Air to race a Sinister Mopar and this is how this car came to be a TV car. { There is a DVD of the episode of Monster Garage where the cars race, and it goes with the car along with magazines showing this car} This car was born a 1970 Coronet and has been upgraded to a 1970 Dodge Super Bee 426 Hemi recreation! They started the project by removing the whole stock front suspension and throwing it a away in favor of a Magnumforce tubular K-member and there lightweight upper and lower control arms. This knocks of a tremendous amount of weight of the nose and greatly improves the cars balance. There are also custom BIG front and rear sway bars to keep the heavy weight Dodge from sloshing around. Thanks to Trick suspension and adjustable 10 position coil-over shocks on all four corners, and sits notable lower then a stock machine, and was enhanced with the addition of Wheels Vintiques 18" Magnum 500- style wheels and low profile Nitto drag radials. There is a "Strange Engineering" Dana 60 rear end out back suspended on "Super Stock" springs and hidden behind all FOUR wheels is a 13" Wilwood dilled & slotted rotors with Monster calipers holding six pistons. For power the Super Bee uses a 426 Hemi motor with a single four Holley carburetor to ease maintenance and reliability. The torque Monster Hemi is mate to a built 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission with a 2500 stall and is held in place with a Magnumforce designed system of buffered engine plates. The plates mount the Hemi rigidly to the forward legs of the cars roll cage, tying everything together up front in a nice tight fashion. The bars themselves are welded to the shock towers to add more reinforcement to the whole chassis, and buffer plates hold the Hemi level while insulating the shimmy from the car and thus greatly reducing the overall shaking of the car which is typical of vehicles using simple straight mount motor plates. There is a boat load of chrome and a healthy amount of polished aluminum, and for comfort and reliability sake a GM style electric alternator, Vintage air conditioning, power steering, power rack and pinion, Dakota orange digital dash, custom steering wheel, two tone black & rust interior, custom sound system and more! This car was also in Mopar muscle and Mopar collector guide and the magazines will go with the car. A large poster board featuring this car and the DVD of the TV show Monster Garage with Jesse James racing this KILLER Mopar twice and losing both times!
