In the golden age of American muscle cars, numbers weren't exactly a rarity.
In the golden age of American muscle cars, numbers weren't exactly a rarity. But time, neglect, and the unfortunate fate of becoming scrap metal have rendered some models as elusive as a mirage. Within this elusive category, B-body Mopars shine—or rust—as some of the most sought-after relics.
Chrysler rolled out its B-body chassis back in 1962, christening the Dodge Dart and Polara, as well as the Plymouth Fury, Savoy, and Belvedere. Over time, this platform morphed into the skeleton for muscle car legends like the Dodge Coronet, Charger, Super Bee, and the Plymouth Satellite, Road Runner, and GTX. Let's not forget the one-off wonders—Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird—that also graced this sturdy framework.
Sure, a Dodge Charger or Plymouth Road Runner might not be the needle in a haystack, but an untampered, well-preserved version? Now, you're talking collector's gold. The ones with HEMI engines are especially priced like crown jewels, and the 440 "Six Pack" models are no slouches either.
Now, imagine my Mopar-adoring heart doing somersaults when I came across footage of a farm that is more of a sanctuary for B-body Mopars. It's not your run-of-the-mill barn find; it's a field festooned with Mopar classics in various stages of disrepair.
Look, these cars have seen better days. Many are plagued by rust and decay, but they've been saved from a life of obscurity or, worse, the jaws of the car crusher. And guess what? Some of them are destined for resurrection, either as fully restored legends or as invaluable sources of vintage parts. Among the dust and grime, you'll spot some genuinely rare jewels.
The camera zeroes in on a 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T and a 1969 Super Bee that have clearly felt the weight of time. Despite the wear, these cars are fitted with 440-cubic-inch (7.2-liter) "Six Pack" engines. The Challenger stands out: it's not just one of fewer than 4,000 big-block RT models from '71 but also comes with the coveted 390-horsepower RB engine. The only thing rarer would be a HEMI under its hood.
And let's talk Super Bee—this particular one is an A12 variant, featuring a six-barrel 440 V8, Dana 60 axle with 4:10 gears, a heavy-duty transmission, and a hulking center hood scoop. Though Dodge produced nearly 28,000 Super Bees in 1969, only 1,907 boasted the A12 package.
Interestingly, these Mopar gems once sported roll cages and other racing modifications. Whether they're restored to their racing glory or returned to their original specs, they'll be stunning either way.
But the farm isn't just a two-car wonder. It's also a resting place for a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, becoming increasingly rare and pricey, and a couple of late '60s Coronet R/Ts—one of which sports an elusive triple black look.
You'll also spot a 1970 Super Bee in a unique white and red livery, along with a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda convertible, a true collector's item. And for the Plymouth Road Runner aficionados, there’s a cornucopia of options. One, painted in the ultra-rare Panther Pink or Moulin Rouge depending on the brand, is likely one of a kind.
For Mopar enthusiasts, this farm is more than a field of dreams; it's a tangible link to an era of vehicular bravado and audacious design. So go ahead, take a walk through this glorious Mopar haven by clicking on the video below.
