This blown 472ci HEMI was built for a genuine 1960s nostalgia dragster.
We rebuilt the 500ci Mopar engine for Ian’s stunning Jenson Interceptor.
Built for Matt’s 70 ‘Cuda circuit racer, this 408ci small block Mopar produced 440hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque.
This 493ci Mopar came in for check over. It had 13:1 compression, broken pistons and rings, and bent valves – quite a mess. We dropped the compression to 10.8:1 and sorted all the problems, resulting in a 550hp street engine, with 550ft-lbs of torque. This will make Adam’s ’72 Challenger haul ass!
Jamie’s 1971 Satellite came to us as a stock 383 car. Now it’s had the full Super Stock treatment and has been kitted out with a 493ci, 685hp motor, a new transmission, a Dana 60, Caltracs, a roll bar and a period Super Stock paint job. Shake ‘n’ Bake!
Another steady project complete. Here’s the ex Woody’s Wedge drag car returned to the street as a 440 Six Pack A12 Super Bee clone.
Billadeau Speed rebuilt the 340 motor for Pete’s 1972 Cuda.
We rebuilt and refitted the 440 six barrel for Jay’s 1970 GTX, as well as completing various other jobs.
Adrian’s early Charger was fitted with a 493ci motor, a new transmission, a Sure Grip and a Turbo Action shifter was installed in the original centre console. The hood scoop was also fitted.
The Charger returned, now complete with a period NASCAR paint scheme, to be fitted with an MSD, torsion bars, Super Stock springs and new Flowmasters exhausts.
Adrian has continued to develop the Charger over the years and his most recent visit to Billadeau Speed was for a Dana 60 and Caltracs to be fitted.
This is one of the latest Billadeau project cars, a ’71 Cuda. Progress was steady but we got there in the end!
