Hot Rod’s 1970 Dodge Super Bee Project Lives In late 1995 and early 1996, Hot Rod covered the buildup of one of the very first of the reproduction 426 Hemi blocks from Mopar Peformance, with Dick Landy Industries building a 750hp, 484ci mill. That engine went into David Freiburger’s first cart, a 1970 Dodge Super Bee purchased when he was 15 years old. It was restored and turned into a street/strip car to receive the Hemi, but soon thereafter it was parked and virtually forgotten. It appeared in a 1999 story in Car Craft magazine, and has been gathering dust ever since.
Freiburger and Hot Rod editor Rob Kinnan finally unearthed the Bee this month, and you’ll read all about it in the July ’10 issue of Hot Rod magazine.
