1970 Dodge Coronet R/T

1970 Super Bee

The 1970 Coronet received some new sheet metal again this year. However, for many Mopar fans the new style lacked the cleanliness of previous models and it showed in the quickly declining sales of the Coronet. The new front end styling included two large chrome bumpers that circled individual grills. Other changes for the 1970 year included some new dress up options and high impact colors.

The Super Bee came with either a C stripe or a bumble bee stripe on the rear quarters. It also included non functioning scoops on the hood and came with the standard 383cid. motor. As in previous years all Super Bee's received the Rallye suspension.

The Coronet R/T included large side scoops on the quarter panel and R/T badging. Other options were similar to the previous models including Rallye suspension and the massive 440 Commando motor. This was the last year for the Dodge Coronet.
