The original Dodge Super Bee was billed as Dodge's low-priced muscle car, and was based on the Dodge Coronet two-door coupe. It was produced from 1968 until 1970 in this body format. For the 1971 model year the Coronet was a sedan/wagon only, so the Super Bee model was moved to the platform used by the Charger. Engine choices in 1968 were 383 and 426 hemi. Starting in 1969, 440 was an added choice, and 1971 being the only year for a 340 small block option.
While the 'Super Bee' moniker lived on in Mexico until 1980, it never re-surfaced in United States and Canada until 2007 to 2009 and 2012 to 2014 (both times as a Charger model).

Chrysler Corporation built some popular models based on their compact A-body platform, Plymouth Valient and Dodge Dart, in both 2 and 4 door models with a full compliment of powertrain options. With the 4th generation in full swing, 1970 brought a change to A-body style when the semi-fastback style of Plymouth Duster hit the showrooms. It was an immediate hit, but there was no sister model in the Dodge line-up. Chrysler would fix that with the introduction of the Dodge Demon in 1971.
Unfortunately, the sales figures for the Demon did not match the popularity of the Duster, and at the end of the 1972 model year, the Demon ceased production.
In it's two year run, how many Demons were built for North America?
