    Hello All !
    New here but have been a mopar guy since I went to Talladega in 1970 and saw Ricard Petty's 43 Superbird on track.
    I just bought a 69 Coronet 440 ( body style ) with a #'s matching 383 engine & trans.
    On the fender tag there is the "A40" option which decodes to " 1969 only dodge spring special B package "
    Does anyone know what that is ?
    Thanks for any help on this !

        WH 23 G9E is not a Bee, but can be made one easily.

        Welcome from NY.
        Do you have the whole car or just a fender tag?
        Hard to tell without ------ PICTURES!

        Welcome from Ontario. A friend has one of these and did it up as a Superbee clone. We call it his Wanna Bee.

          OP said it's a 440 model.

          Apparently a 383-2.

          Still cool.

            Here are some pics of the car.
            I am the 3rd owner. The guy I bought it from said he thinks the original owner added the vinyl top.
            I did see the A40 option said it also came with the light package and 3 speed wipers which the car has.
            Another thing is it has the rear defroster option.

                Yes it started out as a 383-2 but one of the guys before me put an edelbrock 383 performer intake and 4 bbl carb.
                I am guessing then that they also changed the exhaust manifolds as they are the HP ones not the logs I think it would have come with.
                Also the engine should be turquoise I think not orange.
                Oh and about that wing on the trunk, it is how do they say it ? Wing Delete !
                I am leaning toward the wrap around stripe though
