The Coronet was first released by Dodge to be the top trim lime on their post WWII models. By 1955 it was being used as their low end trim, and was used through 1959. The Mid size model that became famous on drag strips was released in 1965. Engine power increased through the late 1960's during the muscle car craze. The 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T had a 440 ci engine rated at 375 horsepower, and the 1969 moel had an optional 440 six pack with three 2 barrel carburetors, giving it 390 horsepower.
The Super Bee was released in 1968, and sold through 1971 (the 1971 Super Bee was actually a Charger). Available engines were the 383 ci V8, the 426 Hemi, and the 440 Six pack. The 440 Magnum was reserved for the Coronet R/T only. Only the R/T and Super Bee models are considered true muscle cars.
