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.
The General paid us a visit for wiring and interior work.
‘Flag Jumper’ joins the Super Stock scene with a Craig Ainge & Billadeau period signwriting job. A 360ci motor has been purchased ready for a future upgrade.
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.
Another addition to the Billadeau stable, bought for racing while working on other projects. The ex-Gerry the Gerbil Coronet received a fresh 440, which made 485hp on the dyno, and was given another top signwriting job by Craig Ainge. Ol’ Scatter Bolts was running consistent 11.7s on the strip.
Having sold his ’68 Charger, Bri acquired this Coronet from Duncan Watts, who imported it into the country. The car came straight to us for MOT work, wiring and to fit ally heads. With iron heads, the car had previously run into the 10.9s in the States.
Several years later, Bri brought his Coronet in for an engine bay repaint, transmission rebuild and a 540ci engine was fitted.
Bri freshened up the Coronet in 2015 with some signwriting completed by Craig Ainge, while we added a little airbrush work to finish off the Super Stock styling.
