I believe Coronet Super Bee
Super Bees and R/T's had hood scoops other Coronets did not

1968 and a goofy restoration. I don't think the Super Bee was available as a two door sedan in 68.

The original Dodge Super Bee was based on the design of the Dodge Coronet, designed as a two-door coupe, and was produced from 1968 until 1970.[7] It was the company's low-priced powerful muscle car, derived from the design of the Plymouth Road Runner, and retailed at USD$3,027 on the consumer market. The origin of the name, "Super Bee", has its basis in the "B" Body designation pertinent to Chrysler's mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner and Charger.[8]

^First of all; don't trust Wikipedia: it's at best disorganized nonsense and at worst outright fabricated lies. Second the Super Bee was an option in 1968 and I have discovered it was available on the two door sedans.

Then according to the book "The Chrysler Chronicle" published in 1995, I quote " A no frills Super Bee coupe joins the Coronet lineup". Its official name was Coronet Super Bee" NOT Coronet 440 as presently listed. The Coronet 440 was a different model
To further quote "The newest member of Dodge's Scat Pack was the no-frills Coronet Super Bee packing a 335-bhp Magnum 383 engine and wearing bumble tape stripes" (pg 224 & 226) Despite your opinion to the contrary I sometimes know what I am talking about. This is one of those times..
So to sum up this vehicle is called a DODGE CORONET SUPER BEE COUPE

^There's no such thing as a 1968 Dodge Cornet without a differentiate. The models were Coronet DeLuxe, Coronet 440, Coronet 500, and Coronet R/T. My understanding is the Super Bee was an option for the Cornet 440 line; not per popular belief, the Coronet R/T. As that model was never available in two door sedan form.

You are the one saying it is a 2 door SEDAN. You going to argue with the book I cited, which states that it is a COUPE!! And that it is a model to itself
From the Crestline Series "The Plymouth and DeSoto Story" by Don Butler, the Super Bee's cousin, the Road Runner, was also available in coupe form (pg306)

I know the car. It's a base level '68 Coronet, either a 440 or a Deluxe, dressed up as a Super Bee.

Scoops look too close together.
