Big Carl’s Belvedere has visted Billadeau Speed for various small jobs over the years. The fantastic signwriting by Craig Ainge was completed in 2014.
A real Air Grabber car, originally bought by Dave as a long term background project. The Road Runner didn’t really get the time it needed though and Richard, who had just sold his ’69 Road Runner, was up for the challenge.
Well here’s the result! An absolute stunner, thanks to the hard work of Richard Ward, Ashley Rawson and Richard Granger. Billadeau Speed built the 500ci Six Pack engine for the car, with Indy EZ heads and a mechanical cam. The motor made 580hp with 600 ft-lbs of torque!
Time for another Billadeau project car – a Superbird clone. Early work included a Dana 60 being built, painting the engine bay, fitting a roll cage and getting the front suspension built and powder coated…
The Superbird came together and the HEMI took residence. Making 857HP it was good enough for strong 9 second quarter miles at over 140mph! After a couple seasons in American Super Stock, the car eventually moved on to a new owner.
Dave’s pride and joy was retired from racing in 2012 and taken back to a near factory original state. The car was refitted with a numbers matching 440 Six Pack with cast manifolds, which made 417hp and 504ft-lbs of torque. The roll cage was removed, fuel system taken back to stock and a steel hood with an Air Grabber scoop was fitted.

The original Road Runner race car from the mid 80’s returns! Pure nostalgia. Having been back halfed and caged by Hauser/Webster, the car came to us for paint, wiring and a rebuild as a long term project.
The bulkhead was painted, the front suspension rebushed, the brakes rebuilt and all parts were powder coated.
The graphics were painted by Byran Whitfield and the signwriting done by Craig Ainge. Most of the wiring was complete and the 440-1 heads were ported. The 540ci engine parts were ready for assembly…
After one last push the Road Runner was finally back in the hands of Paul. This long, steady rebuild project was ready to race in the 2012 season, Full Revs!
This Duster was built and owned by Dave back in the 1990s. It’s had a few different owners since Dave sold it on but Mojo’s added some nice touches to the car while still keeping the car period.
Mojo brought the car in to us for a new 493ci engine. Based on a 440 block, it featured Indy SR heads and a roller cam, and was outputting around 600hp. The car had run a best ET of 10.1 seconds.
