Default 1970 Coronet Super Bee a.k.a Project Plan Bee

Hey all,
Happy new year 2022.

First, bare with my english, I live in Finland. The land of SISU,
also country with most world champions in motorsports and of course Santa Claus = Father Christmas = Joulupukki .

I thought its time to post my project.

Bought as a roller, disassembled left to rot, father-son project from South Carolina about 10 years ago. Then it sat in my yard for years. Been slow going project for past 6-7 years now.
Running own fabrication shop and building customer cars took toll on my own. I also make custom cooling products, you will see that in this.

Now past 5 years been working as hired help, been more time to build this. Now days work as an foreman at local trade school machineshop. Have almost all the equipment it the world to make my parts.

SO I started looking one years earlier for new project.
Vision was some how clear. To build really one off, powerful Grand Tourer. Been saing that I'm driving it gross Europe to Monaco when its done.

It will be low, has hidden tube frame inside its body, inside roof frame,
inside frame rails, double rails at rockers and in the middle, around transmission and drive shaft.
Removable main hope, criss and door bars.
Many body panels will be hand made from aluminium.
Fluss front and back glass, one piece door glass.
As you can see in the photos, body has cutted / drilled open,
brassed and sandblasted with home made retossorie, then I put my frame table together
and installed body on it so that top of the table as ground,
ride hight set to 4", as you can see, front rails dont work with that.
They may be relocating or changing

two cores stacked in one set off head plates. 4"x4"x20"
4.9L Kenne Bell twin screw supercharger,
twin 102mm electric throttle bodies and much more.
Almost all one off custom pieces.

ECU and Fuel:

Aeromotive 6 gal/min mechanic fuel pump,

Cooling:

Even some experimental stuff.

Transmission:

Sounds like it's going to be an amazing project. These cars are so cool since you simply don't see them often let alone modified like you have planned. Best of luck and keep us update.

Well, lets show some progress.
Actually wanted to show what I did before sand blasting.
Back panel was shoot, I knew that,
had another panel ready, trunk gutter where also rutted, those I got repo but had to fab quarter edge lid that folds to gutter.
I also had to make the gutter
front corners. Tig weld them on and hammered
flat.
Seam between quarter and sailpanel, usual a rust spot in Mopar, well cut that off and welded a piece there.

Last one is a bonus, jump ahead abit and show have is coming. I took a shapping class in Sweden. Per the Metalman Sweden. Mechammer inventor Ben was there also as a tutor, luckily he became my tutor. Made one rear corner piece there and another at home, few years later. They will be welded on. So one seam less.

Dont know why some of the pics are sideways or can I adjust them. Maybe Jody can..

Fixed... Yeah, that happens sometimes usually when a pic is taken in portrait instead of landscape like off a cell phone. Seems to be happening with Iphone pics only. If you take all your pics in landscape mode there's no issue. The solution to fix them when sideways is to download them from the thread onto your computer, rotate them correctly, and re-attach to the thread. For some reason it seems to only happen with cell pics taken vertically, and only Apple products.

Getting low. -er.

as the plan is to get this car low, put still driveable low.
pre-measures shows it could be around 126cm/ 46" of total height.
Wheels and tires will effect it of course, but we'll see.

I got an idea to rise the rear frame rails above the rear axle.
To be able to rise the axle with out loosing suspension travel.
when mounted the body on the frame table,
I fab'ed adjustable stands, like jack stands.
Cut'ed the frame rails from rockers and from trunk edge.
Loose the original wheel tubs at this point also.

Leaving the trunk floor to stock location for now.
Then jacked it up 3".
Made pieces to fit the caps,
bead roller the edge to give same curve as stock rails..

After they where welded on, supported the rear panel from table.
I cut'ed the rear frame rails off, and floor under rear seat.
they where is good shape but they where too narrow for my plans.
Made new wider ones with magnetic brake. Again, with same kind of radius as stock ones. Now I can fit a tube in. Tube frame. That's coming, as are the bigger tubs.
