Howard's Coronet

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.
