1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee 2 door hardtop. 383, factory 4 Speed car. Darn near perfect! Original engine and transmission. Partial VIN on both and casting dates are correct. Partial VIN on radiator support. VIN tag itself looks to have never been off. Correct rivets. Itís real! Original fender tag. No build sheet found. Factory N96 Ram charger hood. Original M46 side scoops. No power steering or brakes. AM Radio. Sure Grip with 3:91 Gears. She's a beauty. This very solid original sheet metal car was a drag race car in Colorado for several years. It was restored here in Omaha about 8 years ago. It took about 3 years to do it. Has pretty much sat in a collection since restored. The Bee has driven about 300 miles or so. All panels appear to be the factory panels. Note the factory "tabs" on the bottom of the rear quarters. Original Y2 yellow with white and black interior. The car is all the correct shade of Y2 Yellow. A few pictures were taken indoors and the cameras flash makes the yellow look darker. There was over $78K PLUS in restoration costs. Thatís when he stopped counting. Money meant nothing to this collector / builder. Over $20K in paint / rotessorie alone! Dead straight body! High shine gloss body! Pretty much everything is new. And I mean everything! From the dome light to tires. Front bumper to rear. Headlight, tail light bezels, re chromed bumpers, complete interior from Legendary. Door frames were base coat clear coated. Dash, dash pads, glove box, gauges, radio, console top, wooden steering wheel, all trim was polished. Glass is new. Door handles, mirrors, the complete Ram Charger set up is new. And on and on. The engine was rebuilt as well as the transmission and rear end. The engine has a Mopar performance 440 steel crank. All comp valve train. Many performance parts in the engine were used. All done right! And all stock appearing. The sure grip rear end gears are 3:91ís. The original 4 speed was gone through. High performance parts through out it too. 15 inch red lines with magnum wheels. Non radial red lines. Front suspension rear suspension all re worked. See under body pictures. Could use 4 wheel alignment. All drum brakes. The Trunk floor excellent, the interior floors excellent. There was a roll bar in the car and the two mounts were repaired behind the bucket seats on the floor. Again this was a very solid car when it was being restored. Under the hood all appears as it did when the car was new. Wires, clamps , hoses. The car has been driven, so not perfectly fresh but darn close. See pictures. The battery is new. The under body looks as nice as the top, well close. I had a leaky transmission seal were the drive shaft mounts and got some fluid splashed about. I cleaned it all. However there is some staining on the exhaust. Some steel wool should fix this. To sum it up you have a car here thatís a beautiful example of true Mopar Muscle. Numbers match from what I see and its just about darn near perfect. You are welcome to have it inspected or come see it yourself. This is a 7 day auction. If you need any further information please call me anytime at 402 659 1118. I'm in Omaha Ne. Close to I 80. This car is immaculate. This fine car is being sold ďAS ISĒ.

In the market for a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango? Well, if you fancy a more expressive color for your new SUV, you'd better get your order in, or plan on waiting until well into 2015.
The SUVs will be limited to just four monochromatic shades - black, white, silver and gray - until at least February, thanks to an upgrade to the paint shop at the two vehicles' Jefferson North factory. For the Grand Cherokee, that means it's losing more than half its color palette while the Durango is dropping two-thirds of its color catalog.
The loss of colors is inconvenient, but the upgrade will have a slightly bigger effect on the overall supply of SUVs, as Chrysler will need to end its relentless build pace at the factory for a three-week shutdown starting on December 22. The good news for fans of the SUVs is that once the work is completed, we should see a gradual expansion of the color palettes for both the Durango and Grand Cherokee, beyond even what's offered now.
We won't beat around the bush: The all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger is not a brand new car. This generation launched in 2011, AWD models and all. But for 2013, Chrysler has added an optional sport package to the AWD model, available with both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the sweet, sweet 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The upgrades for this new sport pack are mainly cosmetic; a gloss black grille, new 19-inch alloy wheels and body-colored rear spoiler make up the list of exterior changes. Inside, there are new sport seats and paddle shifters, and the eight-speed automatic transmission has been reflashed for better performance.
But because vehicles like the Dodge Charger mainly stick out in our minds as being rear-drive bruisers, Chrysler wanted to give us the opportunity to test out the LX platform's foul-weather prowess. And perhaps no place more appropriate to test such a system was way up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the dead of winter.
Chrysler owners are hopping mad after experiencing a series of electrical gremlins in some of the company's vehicles. Issues range from mere annoyances - windows rolling down and radios turning off of their own accord - to serious safety issues, with headlights that randomly shut off at night and cars that stall and refuse to start.
The issues are being blamed on the total integrated power module, which can cost up to $1,000 for customers to replace. This, of course, has led to a hefty batch of complaints to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with 240 owners expressing their displeasure so far. Another site, CarComplaints.com, has registered over 300 complaints relating to the 2010 to 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango, alone, according to The New York Times.
Chrysler has acknowledged that it's investigating the complaints and is analyzing the faulty TIPMs, but that isn't quite enough for customers of the affected vehicles. The newspaper has snagged a few of the more harrowing tales with the electrically challenged Chrysler products, culled from the NHTSA complaints.
