1973 Plymouth Duster restored by V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Plymouth named it the Duster, but this freshly restored 1973 version by the V8 Speed and Resto Shop is too clean for the name! Unless you’re referring to the hot 340 V8 under the hood.. then it all starts to make sense. You’ll get to hear the thumping Comp cam under the Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads when we post the video feature.   The V8 team was honored for the opportunity to restore every aspect of this car.  But that blue though! The secret of the color is also revealed in the video… stay tuned!

1969 Camaro "Carbon Flash" Restoration At V8 Speed & Resto Shop

Sometimes it’s advantageous to take over a project than to start from scratch.   In this case, the customer wanted a cool ‘69 Camaro, and we happened to find him one that was already undergoing a restoration.   The owner of this clean Arizona car changed his mind and decided to sell his project, so we had the car shipped to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, IL, where it transformed into the Pro-Touring Camaro the new owner has always wanted.     Features include a Holley Terminator EFI system, Vintage Air A/C, Scat seats, restoration parts from Classic Industries, Axalta paint, ARP engine hardware, COMP cam, and much more.
