About Us


Frank Badalson has been involved with Mopar since the late 60’s and early 70’s, his first car being a 1970 Barracuda, 318, 2-bbl. That was the smallest engine he was destined to own. His first ride in a hemi came at the hands of longtime buddy Steve Sowar around 72-73. In early 1975 Frank owned his first hemi, a 1971 hemicuda. Over the years Frank has owned 55 other original performance Mopars, five of which were original hemicars. Since1973 Frank has amassed a large volume of technical material, factory literature and bulletins as well as original photographs which are a valuable reference source now used in our everyday business.
Frank’s restoration business, American Performance, LLC now specializes in restoration services. Check out our Services page for more info!
