The Challenger never was a "B-Body" Dodge. The Super Bee was a striped down performance version of the Coronet and Charger model back in the day.

Aside from the current Challenger model, I hope Chrysler has gotten this "reliving the past" BS out of it's system. JMO.

No love for the A12 Six Pak/6 BBL cars either? Most people forgot about the 71 Charger Super Bees. Cool cars too, Mama has one, originally a 383, 4-spd, now a 440-4, 4spd about 90% complete as far as a driver goes.

The Scat Pack rear window decals were factory installed on 1970 Challengers with the 340 engine package (A66). See link to Dodge data book and thumbnail for location of factory Scat Pack decal on a 1970 Challenger. As far as I know, the decals were factory installed only on the 340.

I LOVE the 71 hood scoop set-up

It’s pretty easy to slap a couple stickers on your car to try to resurrect some of the emotion of the “glory days” IMO, These are the glory days. Those days were fun, but not as fun as this. The orig. question, “Ok what would make a Challenger a Super Bee?” Like Goehner said, “Nothing”. My opinion, if your going to try to throw back, you must respect the design/style of the current platform. Hence the design/style of the hood badges (see avatar) and the valve covers.. Stay true to the brand, the platform and the times. Also, excellent write-up Cuda340. Thanks

Had I known in 1978 that my 1970 Super Bee was going to be valuable, I mighta fixed it instead of sending it to the junkyard. I hit a bank doing about 60 mph and screwed it up pretty good. The front fenders were pushed back such that I couldn't get the doors open. Had to crawl out the windows. We were lucky we walked away from that one. We were knocked out, so it took a while for me and my buddy to figure out where we were. Thankfully, we hadn't started drinking yet. My dad would have killed me! lol

You are both correct, but aren't you forgetting the A-Body and F-Body Super Bees??

In the 1970's dodge produced A-Body "Dodge Super Bees" for MEXICO ONLY.

These were (ironically) based on the Plymouth Valiant (and later on the F-Body Aspen) and were made form 1970 - 1980

They had 318s and 360s with 4-speeds only (no auto option), hood scoops, hood mounted tach, sometimes "Go Wings" and of course Super Bee stripes and logos... and they were among the fastest street cars in Mexico at the time.

Some pics and links....

Duster maybe. Some of those were pretty potent. But an Aspen? Really? My '69 440 Bee would have died of shame.

Well don't Tell these guys - They race F-Body Mopars, including 76-77 Aspen R/Ts

Also, here's a 1977 Aspen based Dodge Super Bee (pretty lame graphics IMO)
