AUTHENTICALLY RESTORING MOTOR CITY MUSCLE FOR OVER 20 YEARS!
David Dudek has oil in his veins. From a young age, the St. Clair Shores, Mich. resident watched and learned the art of car restoration from his dad, David Sr.
Dudek grew up learning about and loving everything muscle cars. He meticulously studied every aspect - down to the types of bolts used to various forms of part identification. His work is rooted in authenticity and knowledge of what it means to be factory stock.
Dudek started to restore vehicles more than 20 years ago. From humble beginnings out of a small garage to a 10,000 square-foot shop today, Dudek's popularity and reputation for excellence among muscle car enthusiasts have made him a house-hold name on and off the track.
Dudek's prides himself - and is known for - period-correct restoration. Unlike other restoration services, Dudek's vast knowledge and experience of restoring vehicles as if they came right from the factory set him apart. Down to period correct nuts and bolts, markings, and other distinctions from back in the day, Dudek's work is authentic as you can get!
With an international client base of auto enthusiasts, Dudek's work can be found racing on the track or at auction, often fetching well over $200,000. He recently completed a ground-up restoration of a rare 1971 Plymouth Hemi GTX that sold for a quarter-million and outsold 1,000 vehicles at Mecus Dallas auction.
Dave Dudek and his team crafted a full restoration of this 1971 Hemi GTX. Shortly after the restoration was complete and without a pre-trial run down the track, the owner piloted this classic to a Factory Stock 1971 B-body record!
1969 Dodge Daytona
Dave Dudek Muscle Cars prepped this 1969 Dodge Daytona for auction in just three weeks. The car's transformation - which can be described as night and day - sold at auction for $220,000.
FASTEST FACTORY APPEARING MUSCLE CAR RACE IN AMERICA!
Dave Dudek is a co-founder of the popular Factory Appearing Stock (FAST) drag race series.
FAST racing features muscle cars built in United States and Canadian assembly plants. No matter how you look at them, FAST cars appear showroom stock, including the body, interior, engine and all its external components and manifolds, even the wheels and original 1960's style skinny bias ply tires. In fact, FAST cars place well at shows for "restored" cars. FAST cars may look and sound stock, but internal engine modifications are not restricted. Indeed, engines under the hoods of most FAST racers contain the latest technology usually reserved for NHRA class record holders.
Enthusiasts from around the country and even internationally compete in three classes – FAST class, Factory Stock, and Modern Muscle – and cover the quarter-mile in the 9-13 second range. Only a handful of racers have achieved the coveted nine-second mark.
Dudek is the all-time FAST race leader, compiling more than 40 race wins since the series start in 2001. His fastest time is 9.90 @ 140 MPH achieved in his 1969 Plymouth Road Runner during the 2017 FAST Fall Nationals at the Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, Maryland.
