A lot of you fail to realize exactly what it is you’re looking at. This was shot in 1969! Back then, TIRES were the enemy, as Polyglas was all they had. Equip ANY old muscle car from that era in modern radial tires of today, and they drift less, body roll more as the tires grip better, and overall improve the handling of these 2 ton brutes. I had a 1966 Polara 500 with the 383 Magnum. I put Futura GLS radials all the way around (235/60-R15 up front and 275/50-R15 out back) and this car handled great! Sure, I coulda put Perelli P-Zero’s, but I didn’t have the cash for them. But in all of these classic films, the greasy Bias-Ply tires are always the enemies to shitty handling and crappy braking distance.

You’re right, Paul. No such thing as a C-body Super Bee. They called it a Super Bee because it was a play on the B-body name. So the name was NOT used on a C body. Though I am sure his 69 Polara convertible was awesome with a 440 under the hood!

’69 was the best looking model for sure.

69 was cool, but 67 was the best.
