1974 Dodge Challenger Project

This is the latest Billadeau restoration project, a genuine seventies factory backed Super Stock Dodge Challenger.  The car was built and driven by Joe Allread during 1974 to ’75 before being sold to Dave Hendricks, who raced it through to 1979.

Powered by a 360ci motor with a Nash-Chrysler 4 speed and Dana 60 rear end, the Challenger ran an 11.56 @ 126mph during it’s final season in the SS/L class. The car was then parked and remained in storage right up until 2017 when it was imported to the UK by Duncan Watts.  We took ownership in 2018 and can’t wait to bring the car back to it’s best.   Check back for progress pics next year!

Adrian’s ’66 Dodge Charger

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.
