'71 Dodge Superbee

Our 71 'Bee, owned by my wife and I since 1995. Complete restoration took about 10 years, but not because the body was in bad shape, just the opposite. Just time was not available all the time to work on her.

383 Magnum, numbers matching, including transmission and rearend.

GA4 Light Gunmetal Iridescent according to the color chart. Thanks to all of your comments, and yes, I do need to load it to the Superbee website. Been meaning to for years. May all of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season. Tony

Veloudaa, this is my favorite color for the charger, my 71 was going to be black but after seeing your charger I'm convinced. I called my local paint store and they say they can't get GA4 gunmetal metallica, and never heard of Iridescent. Could you help me out how to get chip? A sample or the contact for the shop that painted it maybe they can help. Thank you I hope you could help me out, email is

Tony, It was nice to meet another USAF Brother into Hot Rods and doing the right thing for Toys For Tots run this year. My wife and kids were so happy to ride along to the Marine Corps Museum with you guys under police escort for such a great cause. We hope to see you, your wife and your awesome car, at the different car shows next year. God Bless you guys, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Oscar and Family

When I came back from Viet Nam in the summer of 1971 I purchased a vehicle identical to this one and I have never seen another one with the same color before this photo. I am wondering if it could be my car? I purchased it at Little Rock Dodge in Little Rock Arkansas.

I bought this car in 1995. Someone had painted it twice with red paint, but all the door jams, trunk and engine compartment were still GA4, Light Gun Metal Irred. I bought it from a couple of guys in Dallas Texas. If you have the last six digits of the VIN, I'll let you know. It would be good to meet the original owner.

Thanks Cordobaguy. You know, if you do own a 77 Cordoba, it is not that far removed from the 73 Charger your parents had.

Your car is fairly close to the color of dad's "73 SE. I was with my parents the day they bought the car brand new in April "73(they bought it off the show room floor at a long gone dealership called Pioneer Dodge in Murray Utah. It was purchased to replace a Forest green 73 Dodge Coronet Crestwood wagon that got wrecked on 01/17/73. That car was only 7 weeks old with 2083.7 miles on it. My dad hit black ice at night coming down out of the mountains 9 miles south of Paige Az. I'm just lucky we lived to buy the Charger. As for my Doba, it's as close as I'll get to the "73 SE. I'm just glad I found it.
