The “Super Bee” name comes from the “B” body designation used for mid-sized cars from Chrysler. Interestingly, the Super Bee logo design was picked from a contest winner’s entry based on the Dodge “Scat Pack” medallion. The 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee was a direct competitor to the Plymouth Road Runner. It was created as a budget muscle car with low cost and high performance. The 1971 model had a totally new body style, with ventless side windows, concealed windshield wipers, a split front-bumper design, a semi-fastback roof, power bulge hood (blacked out), V6X black sport stripes, and Bee decals.
