This Super Bee came equipped with a 440 with three 2-barrel carburetors, a forced-air “Ramchargers” hood, a Mopar automatic with column shifter and Rallye wheels. A coupe model with the defining side pillars and pop-out rear windows, it is among the rarest of Dodges. Of the 15,506 Super Bees produced in 1970, fewer than 200 of the 440s were coupes. Only 87 had automatic transmissions.

But since it’s going to be at our booth at this weekend’s Portland Roadster Show, I had a handful of technical and cosmetic things I needed to take care of, and a few rare sunny March Read More
It’s been a big couple of weeks for ACC. On Wednesday, we shipped our second issue to the press, complete with all of our 2012 Scottsdale coverage. I think it’s even better than our first issue – it includes a number of new features, including a poll of what our subscribers bought in Scottsdale and a look at some of the best junkyards in the U.S. Subscribers should see it in their mailboxes sometime around the end of the month.
The whirlwind Scottsdale auction week is over. The ACC crew is now back in the office and knee-deep in production of ACC’s second issue, which is going to feature an in-depth look at everything that happened in the Arizona desert this year.
