Dan, a.k.a. Tomby, brought his Duster to us for engine work. The 360 engine was fully rebuilt with forged pistons, ported heads, a hydraulic cam along with a 3″ exhaust, making the car good for 13.3 second ETs. The engine bay was painted and the graphics were also created and applied.
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.
Billadeau Speed fitted the engine and transmission to Pat’s Charger. A roll cage was also installed and the car was fully rewired. The Bumble Bee stripe was also applied.
