STATEMENT FROM CURRENT OWNER:

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL NUMBERS MATCHING 1 OF 92 BUILT FOR THE U.S. IT IS VERY RARE CAR WITH LESS THAN 10,000 ORIGINAL MILES . THIS MAY BE THE ONLY WHITE ON WHITE ULTRA RARE COLOR COMBINATION OF A 69 HEMI 4 SPEED KNOWN TO EXIST. CHRYSLER CORP DID NOT DOCUMENT COLORS DURING PRODUCTION. THIS IS A CONCOURS GOLD AND NATIONAL 1ST PLACE WINNER AT MULTIPLE EVENTS. RESTORED TO O.E. STANDARDS BY ABM RESTORATIONS FINISHED 2014. PICKED AS MOPAR'S TOP ELIMINATOR IN 2014 WHICH WAS INCIDENTALLY THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 426 HEMI AND 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DODGE CORPORATION. THE CAR APPEARS ON MANY WEBSITES, WON THE SHOWCASE 'EMERALD' AWARD AND A GOLD AWARD RACKING UP 997 POINTS AT MCACN . IT COMES WITH A PHOTO DOCUMENTED HISTORY, DETAILING WHEN IT WAS THE "HIDE AND WATCH" DRAG RACE CAR IN THE EARLY 70's. THIS INFORMATION AND MORE CAN BE FOUND IN THE MOPAR COLLECTOR GUIDE AUGUST 2014 ISSUE. OLD PHOTOS, RACING TROPHIES AND DOCUMENTATION WILL STAY WITH THE CAR. ALL NEWER DOCUMENTATION, AWARDS, PHOTOS (BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER RESTORATION) WILL ALSO STAY WITH THE CAR. THE REBUILD OF THE ENGINE [FIELDS], TRANSMISSION [SHARPED] AND REAR END [RING & PINON] HAS BEEN COMPLETED. ENGINE WAS TESTED ON DYNO TWICE AT [KINETICS] THEN BROKE-IN ON A TEST STAND FOR 8 HRs PRIOR TO INSTALLATION . PRIOR TO THE REBUILD IT WAS GARAGE KEPT SO IT HAD LITTLE TO NO RUST (ALL OF THIS IS DOCUMENTED IN PHOTOS). THE QUARTER PANELS AND FLOOR PANS ARE ORIGINAL. THE HOOD AND REAR INNER WHEEL WELLS WERE REPLACED WITH ORIGINAL PARTS FROM A DONOR CAR, THAT IS ALSO DOCUMENTED WITH THE CAR. THIS IS A COLLECTOR CAR AND NEEDS THE RIGHT NEW HOME TO PRESERVE ITS HISTORY. THIS LOW MILEAGE ICONIC MUSCLE CAR IS AN EXAMPLE OF PERFORMANCE AND STYLING IN THE LATE SIXTIES. THIS CAR COMES WITH HISTORY FROM STREET TO THE DRAG STRIP RACING AND THE STEP BY STEP PROCESS OF ITS REBUILD TO THE COLLECTOR CAR YOU SEE TODAY. A TRUE PERFORMANCE CAR FOR THE RIGHT COLLECTOR. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CARS YOU LOOK AT AND THINK- WOW HEMI SUPER BEE NOT ORANGE, RED OR GREEN BUT ALL WHITE...HUH?!

RESEARCH FROM THE OWNER:

DODGE & " THE SCAT PACK" LIVE ON TO THIS DAY

THE DODGE BOYS IN THE WHITE HATS AND "DODGE FEVER" ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS STARTED IN 1968 ONCE AGAIN CAUGHT THE EYES OF PERFORMANCE BUYERS WITH AN ENTIRE MODEL DESIGN GROUP CALLED "THE SCAT PACK". ALL WEARING "BUMBLE BEE " RACING STRIPES AROUND THEIR TAILS AND EQUIPPED WITH HOT ENGINES, BEEFY DRIVETRAINS AND WIDE TIRES. THE RESTYLED B-BODY LINE [BROWNLIE STUDIO] WAS THE MOST EXCITING EVER. A SMASHING NEW RESTYLED CORONET WITH ITS SMOOTH CURVES ,TIGHT WAIST, SHARP EDGES AND SHARK LIKE REAR WINDOW DESIGN SCREAMED "GET OUT OF MY WAY". IT IS STILL TIMELESS TODAY. NEW FOR 69 WAS THE "RAMCHARGER", A FRESH AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM STANDARD ON THE 426 HEMI ENGINE AND OPTIONAL WITH THE 383. ALSO OPTIONAL FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY YEAR ARE THE DOUBLE SCOOPS ON THE REAR QUARTERS. THE SUPER BEE WITH REFLECTIVE BUMBLE BEE LOGO {OUTFITTED WITH SPINNING TIRES AND A RACING HELMET W/GOGGLES] ON THE REAR STRIPES SUMMED UP- "IT'S FAST AND IT'S FUN". THE SUPER BEE AND DODGE'S OTHER COLLECTION OF"SCAT PACK" HIGH PERFORMANCE CARS WERE SUCCESSFULLY MARKETED TO RACERS AND THE YOUNGER MARKET. THE 426 RACE HEMI CAME OUT IN 1964 AND THE 426 STREET HEMI IN 1966, ONCE THIS BALL STARTED ROLLING THERE WAS NO STOPPING MOPAR PERFORMANCE. FROM 1966 TO 1971 THE 426 HEMI MADE ITS WAY INTO VARIOUS DODGE AND PLYMOUTH INTERMEDIATES TO PONY CARS TRANSFORMING ALMOST ANY CAR INTO A 13SEC STREET BULLY.
