Mark's A12 Super Bee
Mark L. of San Antonio had this original A12 Bee trucked up here to Smothers Tuned Supercars to get it brought back to life.......Here's how the car looked after we tore it apart for an EXTREME makeover........













Pictures are worth a thousand words..................













Check out that fresh paint......Mark Smith and Ernie Shaefer did a fantastic job of fixing the sheet metal the RIGHT WAY and pimping out the body and paint!!!









The Hemi orange Bee is back at my shop.........



Awe yeah, check out the detail.........





Motor is a stock stroke 440 with TRW flat tops......It's got a small, custom ground solid Dwayne Porter cam, and the 906 heads are ported......The car should easily run 110MPH or better, which is good enough for 11.90's on slicks...........Car's got chrome valve covers on it since the originals are in the middle of being pimped out........Mark added power steering to make getting it in and out of a parking spot at Wal-Mart a little easier........... .





It's finally starting to look like a car.........Mark added the vinyl top so it'd be more convenient to throw the hood up there......






18 spline HEMI transmission has just been freshened and it's ready for some POWER SHIFTING!!!



Check out that under carriage!!!.........and just think, I get to hammer on it for the first time!!!





Mark added bucket seats and console, so we installed the console brackets and bucket seat floor reinforcements by glueing them in with epoxy instead of welding them in........



Car's finally coming together...........
