1969 Super bee A12  440 Sixpack 4-Speed Reproduction

If you were serious about going fast in 1969, the Dodge store was where you should have been shopping. They were so serious, in fact, that they built these incredible A12-code cars with 440 cubic inches, three 2-barrel carbs, and a wild lift-off fiberglass hood. In fact, they were serious enough to forego even hubcaps on the car, knowing that racers wouldnít need them, or better yet, would simply be installing a set of lightweight aftermarket wheels the minute they got home. Lightweight, cheap, and scary fast was a recipe that served the Super Bees extremely well.

This Original F8 1969 Super bee A12 Reproduction  is a great example of the buy-it-today, race-it-tomorrow cars that Dodge was putting out at the height of the muscle car era. Subject to a restoration three years ago, it remains in nice condition today, ready to show or enjoy. This car can be purchased at the fraction of the cost of an original A12 car. One added bonus is this is a true Superbee with original fender tag.

This car was built like the originals.  There are no options on the car except for the 440 Six Pack engine, 4-Speed and the white Bumblebee sport stripe on the tail. Personally, I really dig the stripped down, bare-knuckled street fighters like this Ė they donít have any kind of identity crisis like some of the loaded up cars might. You wanted fast, this is what you bought. If you wanted something with more luxury, you bought something else that wasnít as fast. Combined with that lift-off hood, cars like this certainly separated the men from the boys.

Thatís right, nothing but the go-fast gear. You got a problem with that? Maybe this is too much car for you, after all. Allow us to show you something more modest, say, in the minivan department.

If youíre still with me, letís talk about the detailing on this car. Top and bottom, it is very presentable. The bodywork is nice quality. In fact, itís a lot nicer than any street racer has a right to be. The A12-specific hood has the correct finish (many times the black is too flat). It rolls on a set of black steel wheels.  And since these cars didnít come with hubcaps, the factory dressed them up with chrome lug nuts.

Underhood, it has a correct Six Pack air cleaner, electronic ignition and Mopar Performance Valve covers.  The engine itself is a stock built 440 with pleanty of power. The rear is an 8 3/4 with 391 gears.

Inside, youíll find a mix of nice original parts with high quality reproductions. The dash bezels look good, as do the new armrest and inside door handles. All soft trim from the headliner to the door panels to the carpet is in perfect shape. As you can see it has a  rally dash.

Muscle car collecting is about reliving an era that weíll probably never see again. It was a time when there werenít as many rules, and the factory-built cars were purpose-built weapons that any guy could put on the street. The A12s were perhaps the most pure expression of Chryslerís go-fast, no-frills, take-no-prisoners philosophy, and this car is a great example of it. If you want your iron fist hidden in a velvet glove, you should probably buy something else. If you simply want the iron fist, however, this is exactly the car for you.

Dodge celebrates big B-day with 100th Anniversary Editions muscle cars

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 20:00:00 EST

Being in business for 100 years is a HUGE milestone, so we hope Dodge has more in mind to celebrate its centennial than just a special edition package for the 2014 Charger and Challenger. Called the 100th Anniversary Edition package, this collection of cosmetic enhancements will be available in limited quantities for both cars at a cost of $2,500.
Ordering a Charger or Challenger with the 100th Anniversary Edition package means starting with either a V6-powered SXT Plus or V8-powered R/T Plus model. They can each be ordered in many colors, but only the High-Octane Red Pearl Coat above is an anniversary exclusive. Each car also comes with an anniversary-exclusive set of 20-inch, five-spoke wheels with what Dodge calls "Granite Crystal pockets," a texture that's also mirrored on each car's grille.
Of course, there are commemorative badges galore affixed to the exterior of each car, including "Dodge Est. 1914" fender badges and "100" logos on the center caps of each wheel. The styling theme of each car's interior is a bit more interesting, with Dodge designers trying to evoke "the patina and machinist legacy of John and Horace Dodge," the company's founders. To that end, the leather interior can be had in Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa, and each features a custom cloud overprint that makes the hide look like a working man's dirty dungarees. Designers also used brass-colored accent stitching on the interior's leather trim pieces, and affixed more "Dodge Est. 1914" badges to the front seat backs and floor mats. We do like the flat-bottomed steering wheel, and the Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition gets exclusive white gauges faces and the Charger black. The "100" on each car's speedometer is also highlighted in red.

2014 Dodge Durango bows with eight-speed auto, updated looks [w/video]

Thu, 28 Mar 2013 15:31:00 EST

Dodge has significantly updated its full-size Durango for the 2014 model year, giving the seven-passenger hauler a fresh look and a well-rounded boost of competitive features as it enters its fourth year in the showroom.
Cosmetically, it is hard to miss the revised front end with projector-beam headlamps and LED daytime running lamps, "floating" crosshair grille, a taller front bumper and a new lower fascia. The rear end of the facelifted Durango has been redesigned with the automaker's now-signature LED "racetrack" taillamps and resculpted rear fascia. All of the wheels are new too, with 18- and 20-inch options for each trim level with a variety of factory finishes.
Inside the cabin, buyers can select the automaker's latest Uconnect infotainment system with a full suite of infotainment features and connectivity accessed through an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Other optional goodies include a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seating and a Blu-Ray player capable of running unique programs on the twin individual rear monitors.

Dodge Durango to stay classy with Ron Burgundy as spokesperson [w/video]

Sat, 05 Oct 2013 10:48:00 EST

The upcoming 2014 Dodge Durango has a lot of things going for it, including its 290-horsepower V6 and 360-hp Hemi V8 engine options, an eight-speed automatic and aggressive looks. And now it will have Ron Burgundy, the fictional television news anchor played by comedian Will Ferrell, as a spokesperson, Adweek reports. He follows in the footsteps of other non-fictional Chrysler brand spokespeople such as Eminem, Clint Eastwood and the late Paul Harvey.
Though the star of 2004's Anchorman and the upcoming Anchorman 2 is wildly popular, we're not sure we see a Dodge spokesperson in Burgundy. (Please, no womanizing or scotchy, scotch, scotch before test test drives). But at this point there's no turning back: Chrysler's chief marketing officer Olivier Francois previewed three ad spots at the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) Masters of Marketing conference in Phoenix on Friday, and says Chrysler has already filmed 68(!) Durango ads with the fictional newsman.
According to Adweek, one of the ads previewed had Burgundy highlighting the SUV's glovebox size, and in another he compared its horsepower to a white horse standing next to him. Will this help Dodge Durango sales improve? We can only wait and see. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts in Comments, and check out the trailer for Anchorman 2 below.
