Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: 1970 Dodge Coronet 500 Super Bee Clone – This Traditional British Butcher Drives A Meaty American

L Seddon posted shots of this 1970 Super Bee Trubute, and left some comments that describe it in more detail:

Mighty Mopar! – A Very Rare Sight On An Old Cobbled Market Town Street In Northern England.

This Bad Boy Is A 1970 Dodge Coronet 500 2-Door, 5-Passenger Hardtop Coupe, Model [WP23], One Of 8,247 Units Produced, U.K. Registration “ALG 285J”. Despite The Period-Original “Super Bee” Emblem, This Car Is Not An Authentic Super Bee Model, But Actually A Performance Model Clone Build/Tribute Car, Although A Very Good One, At That.

Fitted W/ A Huge 7.0-Litre, 440-CID “Magnum” V8, W/ Holley Carb, And An Automatic Transmission Which I’m Assuming May Be An Original A727 “TorqueFlite”, Plus Aftermarket Auxiliary Performance Gauges Fitted To The Dash. Painted In Period-Correct “Flat Black” W/ “Brite Red” Tail Stripe, Has A Black Vinyl Roof.

This Particular Dodge Was Spotted Up In Kirkbymoorside, Ryedale, North Yorkshire U.K., In July 2017. The Car Is Owned By A Local Craft Butcher Who Owns/Runs A Long-Established Family Business. I Have Seen And Photographed This Car At Several Other Times Whenever And Wherever I Have Seen It, Including At One Time At A Local Classic Car Show Where I Was Lucky Enough To Hear The Magnificent Roar Of The Meaty V8 Engine While Driving Behind It.

It Is Always A Real Treat To See This Beauty Of A Brute Up Close In-Person! – Coolest Car On The Entire Street!
