This is the latest Billadeau restoration project, a genuine seventies factory backed Super Stock Dodge Challenger. The car was built and driven by Joe Allread during 1974 to ’75 before being sold to Dave Hendricks, who raced it through to 1979.
Powered by a 360ci motor with a Nash-Chrysler 4 speed and Dana 60 rear end, the Challenger ran an 11.56 @ 126mph during it’s final season in the SS/L class. The car was then parked and remained in storage right up until 2017 when it was imported to the UK by Duncan Watts. We took ownership in 2018 and set about bringing the car back to it’s best.
Thanks to Dave McCallan at McCallan Automotive a new rollcage was fitted, and we took the body back to bare metal.
The restoration continued throughout 2020 and we now have a finished article ready to hit the track! Hopefully it will go as well as it looks.
