Muscle Car Of The Week Video #2: 1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 MCOTW

This week, we have a special car for Mopar fans from the Brothers Collection. This is the very first 1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 446 Pack ever built! This was the pilot car used by Chrysler to promote the A 12 Roadrunner package, and it has been called the "Wayward Beeper". Its significant history is bolstered by an appearance in Super Stock Magazine, where it was tested and tuned by legendary speed-shifter Ronnie Sox. This car features the 390 hp 440 V8 with 3 2 barrel carburetors, and A833 four-speed transmission, 4.10:1 rear gears, and a stripped-down interior. This very car has gone 12.91 seconds in the quarter mile, leading Chrysler to call it the fastest A12 ever built! You can guess next week's Muscle Car Of The Week on our Facebook page!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 This week's Muscle Car Of The Week from The Brothers Collection is a super-rare 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am, complete with the Ram Air IV 400 cube V8 and Muncie 4-speed transmission! 1970 marked the second generation for GM's F body platform, and the company made substantial improvements to the car over the '67-'69 versions. The 1970 1/2 models were longer and more spacious inside, and generally drove more comfortably than the earlier cars. 1970 also marked the peak in performance Muscle Cars, and the 1970 1/2 Trans Am was one of the top performers. The Pontiac Trans Am came loaded with numerous performance add-ons, such as upgraded suspension, brakes, Exhaust, and distinctive styling. This particular Polar White Trans Am is among the most sought-after of all, as it features the 370 HP Ram Air IV V8 engine and a Muncie 4-speed transmission. The Ram Air IV engine was assembled with very tight tolerances from the factory, making it as close to a hand-built racing engine as you could buy from GM. The RAIV package started with a 4-bolt main block, forged crank and pistons, and a high performance oil pump, but the big difference was in the top half of the engine. The Ram Air IV heads boasted 67cc chambers, 2.11" swirl-polished intake valves and 1.77" Exhaust valves, and large round Exhaust ports. The .520" lift RAIV cam had a long 308 degree intake / 320 degree Exhaust duration and pulled air through an aluminum dual-plane intake manifold. These parts sounded more like they were hand-picked by a race engine builder than a factory offering, but that's what makes the RAIV so special. They only made 88 of these cars, 59 were manuals and the other 29 came with automatics. It's one of the few cars where both transmissions were offered and the manual outsold the auto. Watch the video to learn more about this Pontiac Historical Society documented correct '70 1/2 and its unique details like the original 2-tone blue seat covers, 1-year only Rally II wheels, and distinctive styling elements.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #49: 1969 Chevelle Yenko 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The 1969 Chevelle SS 396 was a hot car, but the COPO program allowed for a run of 427 cars to really take Super Stock drag racing by storm. However, Don Yenko at Yenko Chevrolet one-upped the COPO cars with 99 special 1969 "SYC" Yenko Super Car Chevelles further modified to his liking. This 427 cubic-inch monster features a 4-speed, and it is one of only 12 built in Garnet Red. From The Brothers Collection.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #32: 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - Back in 1969, Ford was ready to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any





Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action. It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #11: 1969 Hurst / Olds Convertible
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 Back in 1969, Hurst built 3 1969 Olds Cutlass convertibles to showcase their shifters, and they brought the lovely Linda Vaughn along to add to the over-the-top presentation. One burned, one is accounted for, but the 3rd went missing. These Oldsmobiles are far beyond the regular 442, as they featured a 455 cube big block Olds under the hood, backed by a 3 speed shifted by - of course - a Hurst shifter. The white and gold paint scheme was wild, but it's impact was not even close to the giant a Hurst shifter mounted on the trunk mounted platform modeled by Ms. Golden Shifter Linda Vaughn! Recently, this car was discovered as being one of the 3 authentic cars, was added to the Brothers Collection, and was treated to a spectacular restoration by Level 1 Restorations. When completed, it was unveiled to the public by Linda herself at the 2012 The Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals. This special presentation features an interview with William Wheeler, the man who drove this car every day back in '69 as the Vice President of Hurst Airheart Brakes. The iconic Olds is ready once again to wow the crowds at drag strips with Linda waving to the crowds from the platform and giant Hurst shifter!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #7: 1966 Galaxie 500 XL R-Code 427
Become a Facebook Fan! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 The Muscle Car Of The Week is this stunning 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL that becomes more interesting the more you look. You will first notice the subdued color called Coventry Gray, and it was never offered on the Ford Galaxie for 1966. It is a specially ordered Mercury color, making this the only one ever built! And while they made many Galaxie 500 XL models, there were less than 50 that came with the R-Code 427 V8 under the hood. Boasting 425 hp, the R-Code 427 breathed through dual four barrel carburetors and churned a four speed manual transmission. This might not look like a race car, but it seemed to be built for the dragstrip. We love the juxtaposition of luxury and power, making this a wolf in banker's clothing!





1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 Four-Speed Mopar Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this near perfect 1969 Plymouth Road Runner. It's powered by a 383 V8 Four Barrel, backed by a four-speed manual trans. This car has been restored to better than new condition. It's super clean, inside and out. This really is a great example of a Mopar muscle car. I hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #31: 1969 Road Runner 426 Hemi Convertible
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - We've featured some pretty rare cars on Muscle Car Of The Week, and this one tops the list! This 1969 Plymouth Road Runner convertible would be cool with any power plant, but the fact that the Air Grabber hood is hiding an original 425 HP 426 HEMI V8 coupled to a 4-speed transmission makes this one of the rarest 'Runners out there! Reports claim 10 of these cars were equipped with the 426 HEMI in drop-top form, and only a couple are said to exist today. This F8 Green monster was featured at the 2013 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in the Road Runner Invitational display and is one of the prized Plymouths in The Brothers Collection.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #39: 1967 Camaro Z/28 Video
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - The '67 Camaro Z/28 is one of the most sought-after Camaros, having been designed to bring the Camaro into the competitive world of Trans Am racing. The Mustang and Barracuda had a couple years lead time on the Camaro, but the potent 302-powered pony car came out of the gate running. This one from the Brothers Collection is a pristine example of an original Z/28 that has been upfitted with some period correct speed parts including the rare cross-ram intake manifold. Too cool.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #42: 1969 Dodge Daytona
REVISED with CORRECTED ENDING This '69 Charger Daytona in the Brothers Collection is one of 502 built, and 1 of 294 with the 440 engine. With its aerodynamic nose piece and towering rear wing, this is definitely the most outlandish design from the muscle car era. But those features weren't added to shock and sell, they were shaped to be kings of the Nascar Super Speedways. In this episode of Muscle Car Of The Week, we'll tell you all about it
