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.
This 1970 Coronet came to us for a new vinyl roof and a few body repairs.
Matt purchased this Dart off eBay as an unfinished project. He brought it to Billadeau Speed to sort the wiring, fit the windows & interior and we got the car through an MOT.
Following a full body restoration by Ash at APR Bodyworks, Jamie’s Charger was brought to Billadeau Speed for reassembly and wiring.
Mark’s Dart came in for us to sort a few wiring faults. He then entered the American Super Stock series… the 318 motor was soon out in favour of a built 340!
The 340 was rebuilt with Eagle Rods, KB Pistons, iron heads and a Comp Cams hydraulic cam. It made 290hp at the rear wheels, so approximately 415hp from the motor. Craig Ainge did another fantastic signwriting job giving the car a true super stock look.
A regular American Super Stock competitor, John’s Dart came in for engine work and graphics. The 440 engine features forged pistons, ported heads and a mechanical cam. The vinyl graphics bring the car to life with a true Super Stock style.
Back again at Billadeau Speed several years later, John’s Dart came in to be fitted with the HEMI which used to power Dave’s Fury. The valve gear was refitted and it was up and running. ‘Reckless’ went on to run 11.2s at the 2013 Mopar Nats.
Chris’s 500ci motor was poorly, so we fitted Edelbrock heads and replaced the rocker gear. It was soon back to running like a dream.
Jon’s tidy Dart came in for a rebuild of its 340 engine.
