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.
This stunning Charger is home to a MP 472 Crate HEMI, which was brought to us for a rebuild. It recorded 530hp on the dyno, with 530ft-lbs of torque. The engine was finished to give a factory appearance. The rear axle was also rebuilt.
This Charger replaced Gene’s Challenger which was sold on in 2008. The Charger got the Billadeau treatment with a full paint job and the original 318ci motor was replaced with a 440. It was fitted with 3.73 gears and Sure Grip, converted to manual brakes and steering, and a tow bar was made and fitted too.
Mike’s 440 Charger received a full engine rebuild, incorporating mild cam forged pistons. Along with the usual high spec rebuild, the engine bay was rewired, the transmission was rebuilt and it was converted to new disc brakes.
