A once in a lifetime opportunity. The first time on the open market since 1969, and from my personal collection:
One of just 92 TOTAL 1969 Hemi Super Bees produced, and one of just 38 4 speeds, this incredible car is all about numbers and luck, beyond even the incredible 1 of 38 statistic. Let me explain: A very good friend of mine grew up at his family's truck dealership in the Bronx. In 1969, one of the truck mechanics at this dealership bought this car brand new. My friend was at the impressionable age of 18 at the time, and immediately fell in love with the Hemi. The original owner used the car only for the occasional street race and late night banzai runs. With this in mind, within days of buying the car new, he removed all 5 of the original wheels and tires, the original mufflers, and the bellhousing. In their place went a set of fat 'n skinny Cragar wheels with new tires, loud mufflers, and a scatter shield. Not that he really needed all this, as over the next 15 years he only put 2,000 miles on the car!
Which brings us back to my buddy. In the mid-1980's, he was still pursuing the Hemi car he had lusted after since 1969. Eventually, enough cash was offered at the right time, and the Hemi was his! With only a few thousand miles on the car, it was in spectacular original condition but suffering from lack of use. The car was brought back to health, mechanical systems refreshed and checked, and driven...almost never. When I learned of this car, I felt just like my buddy did in 1969 - I wanted it! Time went by, and, you guessed it - enough money, an interesting trade, and subtle arm twisting all applied at the right time brought this car to my garage in 2005. The mileage as of today is an incredible 4,095 miles from NEW. Yes, that is correct, it just turned four-thousand original miles.
Fully numbers matching throughout and in incredible condition as you would expect a 4,000 mile car to be, it is truly a reference car for all other Hemi B-Bodies. Other than a high quality repaint in the correct B5 blue done in the late 1980's when the 2nd owner couldn't stand the terrible factory paint any longer, the car is a completely untouched time capsule. I took off the Cragar wheels (still shod with vintage Polyglas tires!) and put back on the original and near perfect wheels and tires. So perfect, in fact, 3 of the 5 have the nubs still on the tread. You guess which two don't. The spare still has the inspection stickers and stenciling on the tread - it has never been used. The original factory installed mufflers, in flawless condition having been carefully removed and wrapped in plastic all these years, are on the shelf. The original tail pipes and resonators are on the car. I have nearly every slip of paperwork from day one. Additionally, I have had Galen Govier inspect this car in person and have his full 25 page report verifying that literally every part on the car is original.
Anybody would feel extremely fortunate to have this incredible peice of Hemi history in their garage. With the perfect combination of low miles, fantastic and documented history, and being a numbers matching, 426 Hemi, 4 speed, Super Track Pack car with 4.10 rear, it is exactly as I would have ordered it new.
I went through this magnificent Hemi from end to end and it is the best running, strongest, and tightest old car you will ever find. It is hands down the best running Hemi I have ever owned. Recently Spike TV used this car for an episode of Musclecar TV, where I drove it at the Milwaukee Mile race track for the cameras. If you did not see the episode, it is posted in my video gallery on this website. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well, then this video speaks volumes about how perfect and literally like new this 4,000 mile Hemi beast is.
If you appreciate original cars like I do, seriously consider this opportunity to own the best.It is as close to being in a Dodge dealer circa 1969 as most of us will ever get!
