Chassis no. WM21J9G174252. Yellow with black tail stripe over black vinyl. 426/425hp Hemi, floor shift 4-speed, hub caps, Goodyear red line tires, bench seat, original radio.

Evaluation: Represented as matching numbers and restored from 2014-17. Invited to The Quail in 2019. Recently detailed and looks fresh with lovely paint, chrome, interior, and engine.

Bottom Line: Only a small fraction of Super Bees came with a Hemi during the 1968-70 model run, and some sources say just 38 of them got both a Hemi and a 4-speed in 1969. They’re not as expensive as you might think, however, and prices have only recently got up to where they were before the 2008-09 muscle car crash. This one sold for $121,000 at Mecum Monterey and presents a little better now than it did then. This result for it in 2022 is a rational one and gives a fair premium to the stick shift and bright paint color.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
