Mark’s ’72 Dodge Dart

Mark’s Dart came in for us to sort a few wiring faults.  He then entered the American Super Stock series… the 318 motor was soon out in favour of a built 340!

The 340 was rebuilt with Eagle Rods, KB Pistons, iron heads and a Comp Cams hydraulic cam.  It made 290hp at the rear wheels, so approximately 415hp from the motor.  Craig Ainge did another fantastic signwriting job giving the car a true super stock look.

Howard’s ’68 Dodge Coronet R/T

Howard bought a kit form 493ci engine for his Coronet and came to Billadeau Speed to complete the build. It featured a mild mechanical cam and B1/BS heads.  This produced 550hp on the dyno, with 600ft-lbs of torque.

The engine bay was sandblasted, painted and rewired.  Other jobs included installing the centre console, fitting a fibre glass hood and upgrading the fuel system.  The propshaft was also upgraded to 1350 UJs.

Steve’s ’69 Plymouth Road Runner

At first, Steve just wanted the engine bay painting and a few oil leaks fixing… he then decided to ditch the old 383 and go for a built 440! It comprised of KB Pistons, steel crank and rods, a comp cam, an aluminium intake, Holley carb and stainless steel valves.  A full seal kit went into the 833 transmission and a new Sure-Grip in the axle.  Some rewiring and the hood stripes finished the job.
