Another steady project complete. Here’s the ex
Woody’s Wedge drag car returned to the street as a 440 Six Pack A12 Super Bee clone.
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.
Tony’s Coronet came to us for wiring and various other tidying up jobs.
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 340 engine made 370hp and 392ft-lbs of torque, and was fitted in John’s ’70 Dodge Dart.
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.
We rebuilt the 440 for Craig’s Charger and it produced 440hp with 500ft-lbs of torque. New headers were also fitted and the exhaust system was made to suit.
The brakes and wiring received some attention on this Warlock truck, along with some general MOT work.
Billadeau Speed rebuilt Matt’s matching numbers 440, which produced 478hp with 511ft-lbs of torque. The engine was refitted along with the transmission and wiring.
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.
