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.

Dave Billadeau’s Plymouth Superbird

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.
