1971 Dodge Charger Superbee 440 6 Pack - Muscle Car For Sale (Click Here)


A Six Pack, three color car—it doesn’t get much cooler than that! Well, sure it does…make it a one of 62 produced, add the Ramcharger hood up front, a 4.10 Dana axle out black, and make sure those colors are screaming red and cool white! This beautifully restored, numbers matching, fully documented car’s a collector’s dream!

All new for ’71, Dodge’s Charger was a big departure from the past while retaining familiar cues. With the move of the Coronet nameplate to four door cars only, there was no platform for the Super Bee to compete with Plymouth’s Road Runner. Dodge decided to hang on to the ‘bee name for one last year, this time with a Charger body. A 383 Magnum engine was standard, as was a three speed manual transmission, standard Charger taillights, a specific bulged hood insert and specific badging. Production dropped drastically, and while most of what Dodge sold were budget oriented, some people must have just been in love with the ‘Bee as much as they loved performance!

Let’s go with the cool stuff from the PAIR of broadcast sheets:

E87 440 Six Pack engine
D32 Heavy duty Torqueflite transmission
A34 Super Track Pack (Dana 60 axle, 4.10 gear ratio, Sure Grip differential, 26” radiator with max cool package, power disc brakes)
N96 Ramcharger hood
V21 Performance hood treatment
FE5 Rallye Red exterior
V1W White vinyl top
V6X Black body side stripes
C6XW White bucket seat interior
C16 Center console
G15 Tinted windshield
N85 Tachometer
M26 Wheel lip moldings
N42 Bright exhaust trumpets
R11 AM radio
R31 Rear speaker
S77 Power steering
U86 G60x15 Polyglas tires
No wheel code specified—“dog dish” style center caps on color matched wheels

Open the door and sit inside the fully restored interior. Those are new seats and a new carpet and headliner. The original dash pad is perfect, as is the center console. The gauges read brightly and accurately, trim and paint are excellent, and the AM radio has thankfully been shelved for a fully operational factory AM/FM unit. That makes quite a difference! The upper door panels and sun visors are excellent originals while the lower door panels were redyed to freshen them up. Twist the key to bring the engine to life, reach down and pull on the ultra cool fresh air switch to open the Ramcharger hood scoop, smile, drop the car in drive and annihilate the tires!

And yes, I do mean annihilate the tires. Pop the hood and check out the credentials—the ORIGINAL 440 engine, topped by the original six pack setup, rebuilt and tuned to perfection. The car fires to a smooth idle when stone cold, takes off smoothly, and once it’s warm those outboard carbs open seamlessly. IF (and it can be quite an “if”) you can get it to hook, you’re gone, the 727 next to you multiplying the monstrous torque before spitting it back to the ultra heavy duty Dana axle. Resplendent in bright orange, the motor wears reproduction radiator and heater hoses, date coded wires, a reproduction air filter and all of its original accessories. There are three tags on the fender: One is the standard tag, one has a couple of random characters on it (internal plant codes) and one says “PREP LINE.” There’s a new red top battery, correct reproduction battery cables, new wiring harnesses and a new washer bottle keeping the 059 radiator company. Did I mention it’s fast, too?

Underneath, clean sheet metal covered in dark gray satin paint is the order of the day. There’s a new Accurate Exhaust Products system, a new gas tank and new lines, rebuilt brakes and a tight suspension. The car drives as well as it looks! Get back up and pop the trunk to find shiny paint, a new trunk mat, a new matching G60x15 spare and the original jack. There’s also a pile of room in here—road trip, anyone?

The exterior finish is exceptional from the flat red paint job to the new white vinyl top and black stripes. Both bumpers are re-chromed, the grilles are perfect, the trim is highly buffed and a set of Charger R/T taillights are out back. Sure, they’re not original, but they look a TON better than the standard issue units, they’re more valuable, and they’re held in by nothing more than six screws in case the purist in you takes over. Panel gaps are excellent, the doors, trunk and hood open and close as they should, and all lights and lenses are perfect and operational. The dog dishes on the wheels just scream “fast!”

We have the original owner’s manual packet, too, complete with all of the starting instructions, Chrysler Marine ads, consumer information sheets, clean air and gasoline usage sheets…they sure packed these things full, didn’t they?

Beautiful in its execution, and brutal in its ability to execute the competition, this super cool Super Bee is ready to rumble. Original sheet metal, original paperwork, and tons of cool options—snap it up before it stings you!
