This very rare machine, home to a 440, came in for MOT work, wiring and a service. Further work included the ignition and brakes, and a Hemi scoop was fitted to the bonnet.
“I remember seeing this car at Doncaster Show when I was 11 or 12 years old, it blew me away! Created in the early ’80s, this was the ultimate show car. After being in a museum for 20 years it was purchased by Steve who brought it to me for a full recommission to get it back to being roadworthy and MOT’d” – Dave
Mick’s Coronet underwent a full restoration at Billadeau Speed. The 440 engine, built to stock appearance, features forged pistons and a hydraulic cam. The body was fully restored and painted in original TT1 Light Metallic Green, with a bumble bee stripe also made up and applied.
Further work in July ’07 included changing the gears from 323 to 391, which saw ETs drop from 14.1s to 13.6s, and also MOT work on the front brakes and bottom ball joints.
At the 2012 August bank holiday weekend round of American Super Stock, Mick had a slight skirmish with another car. Billadeau Speed was able to help Mick begin the road to repair before the car was taken to Ash Rawson’s bodyshop for a new side to be fitted.
