The ex-Billadeau Super Stock Belvedere Wagon is back on the street with a modern edge. New owner Jamie had us install a 6.1 litre Gen III Hemi with a 727 transmission. Other features include Hotchkis torsion bars, super stock springs and a chromoly roll bar. This new set up produced 331hp at the rear wheels.
This Chrysler 300 came to Billadeau Speed for brake and suspension work.
Hollywood comes to Billadeau Speed! This pair of Dodge Chargers belong to the driving experience Car Chase Heroes. Both Dominic Toretto’s Fast & Furious 1970 model and the Dukes of Hazzard 1969 General Lee were brought to us for suspension work.
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 was another Billadeau project car, a ’71 Cuda. Progress was steady but we got there in the end!Continue reading ’71 Plymouth Barracuda Project
John brought both of his Dodge Darts to us for a check over, one a 1968 model, the other a 1972. The ’68 Dart also had some front suspension work.
Tim brought his wild AFX Polara over to the Billadeau workshop for a number of jobs. We narrowed and installed a Dana 60 axle along with fitting some roll bar additions, shock mounts and steering brackets.
Time for another Billadeau project car – a Superbird clone. Early work included a Dana 60 being built, painting the engine bay, fitting a roll cage and getting the front suspension built and powder coated…
The Superbird came together and the HEMI took residence. Making 857HP it was good enough for strong 9 second quarter miles at over 140mph! After a couple seasons in American Super Stock, the car eventually moved on to a new owner.
Mark brought his new toy over for us to install power steering and power brakes. A few electrical faults were also fixed.
Mark’s stunning Challenger was brought in for a Six Pack to be fitted to the 383ci engine. The suspension was also fitted with new bushes.
