1971 Dodge Super Bee

1971 DODGE SUPER BEE IS ALL NEW
1971 marked the birth of the 3rd-generation Dodge Charger, and it now shared the B-body platform with the Plymouth Satellite and Roadrunner. The new “fuselage body” was all new. There was a new split front grille with the bumper outlining it, including the vertical center split. Hideaway headlights were optional as was a rear spoiler. Also optional was a new “Ramcharger” complete with manually-controlled pop-up cold-air hood scoop. This is the same basic design that appeared on the Roadrunner under the nickname “Air Grabber” hood. This would be the last year for the “Hi-Impact” colors, yet introduced a new one: “Citron Yella”. The Super Bee which used to be based on the Coronet, now became a trim package on the Charger.
1971 DODGE SUPER BEE ENGINE OPTIONS
1970 marked the peak of the Classic Muscle Car Era, as horsepower ratings also peaked. But alas it wasn’t meant to last. By 1971, government-required low-octane, low-lead fuel forced carmakers to reduce compression ratios of their engines, which killed performance. But Detroit kept swinging, the best it could with what it had to work with. 1971 was the last year for the 440 Six-Pack option. It was also the last year for the almighty 426 Hemi, and in its final year only 63 were installed in Charger R/Ts. The standard V8 was a low compression 383. For $44 you could option up to a 340.
