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!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
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

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #40: 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 R Racing School Car
You could say that this 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 R has lived several different
lives. It started off as a Wimbledon White '65 Mustang Fastback, then went off to
Shelby American to be turned into a '65 Shelby G.T. 350. However, it did
not go to a dealer for street sale, as it was selected to be used by Ford
as a promotional vehicle. That tour of duty ended in August of '65, when
the car went back to Shelby American for its next chapter for use as one of
the 3 Shelby G.T. 350 Driving School cars. While there, the car slowly
received modifications that basically transformed it into an R model
Competition car. In fact, it was actually re-identified by Shelby as the
37th G.T. 350R Competition car while at Shelby American. The car was also
used as the prototype for the G.T. 500 427 big block cars for 1967. The
driveline was returned to a 289, and it was eventually sold as a G.T. 350 R
and raced in SCCA events in California. The engine was blown, the car was
stored, and the discovered in the late 1980s and restored to the form you
see here today. It remains one of the most interesting stories of all the
cars in the Brothers Collection, and one of our favorites here at Muscle
Car Of The Week!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #4: 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z16
This week, The Brothers Collection brings us a pristine 1965 Chevrolet
Malibu SS396 "Z16" in Rally Red with a White interior! The SS396 featured a
375 horsepower L37
396 cubic-inch V8, which was very similar to the Corvette's L78 396,
although it ran a hydraulic cam and different intake causing a lower horsepower rating.
However, the 4-speed Z16 package cars ran low 14's inthe quarter mile in
stock trim all day long. These cars were also unique in the sense that they
all featured nearly every optional upgrade in the standard package... they
all had tilt wheel, 4-speaker AM / FM stereo, deluxe rear seat belts, dash
mounted clock, 160 MPH speedometer, in-dash tach, and the Muncie 4-speed
with console. Outside, they wore special fender-mounted SS badges, had
unique rear trim, and rolled with mag-wheel inspired wheelcovers. Chevrolet
made 201 Z16 package '65 Malibu SS cars in 3 colors, and this Rally Red
version is one of an estimated 65 remaining today.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #15: Supercharged 1957 Ford Ranchero
One does not normally consider the 1957 Ford Ranchero to be a Muscle Car,
but when you hear the story of this factory built supercharged 312 V8
powered 1 of 2 produced version, the name seems fitting! This Flame Red
super truck is another example of the diversity of the Brothers Collection,
and it stems from a year when Ford gave it's all to beat Chevy in sales and
speed on the NASCAR track.
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
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #21: 1970 Dodge Super Bee 440 6-Pack
This 1970 Dodge Super Bee is not the car you want to drive if you don't
like attention. This Top Banana Yellow example from the Brothers
Collection is not only visibly noticible thanks to the bright color and
white interior and stripes, but the 440 6-Pack under the hood causes a stir
on the street anywhere you go!
Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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 #38: 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI Mr. Norm's
They say the right dealer makes all the difference, and in this case, the
dealer is almost as significant as the car! It's cool enough to imagine
walking into your local Dodge dealer and ordering up a brand-new 1971 Dodge
Challenger R/T complete with a 425 HP 426 Hemi under the hood, but when the
car was bought at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, the whole
experience is even cooler. Mr. Norm Krauss was all about selling high
performance, and his legendary Dodge dealer not only sold these bad
machines, but they also modified, tuned, and raced 'em themselves! This
particular car from the Brothers Collection is the stuff of legends...
triple black, 426 Hemi, pistol-grip 4-speed, Super Trak Pak 4.10:1 Dana 60
rear, and a bill of sale from Grand Spaulding. Too cool.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #9: 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Factory Sunroof
This beautiful 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 looks great thanks to
its pristine restoration and soothing Gulfstream Aqua color, and the S-Code
390 4-speed Toploader combo makes it a blast to drive. However, one of the
most unique features of this Mach 1 is the factory installed steel
sunroof... an option that was not offered on the '69 Mustang. It is one of 2 built with
the opening roof, and it's another excellent example of the diversity of
outstanding Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection. Watch the video to
learn more about this stunning Mustang!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #16: 1970 Ford Torino GT 429 SCJ Convertible
There were many ways to order Muscle Cars, but this week's Muscle Car Of
The Week from the Brothers Collection is a 1970 Ford Torino that makes any
drive a fun time! This black convertible is hiding a 375 HP 429 Super Cobra
Jet V8 under the hood, along with a 4-speed and the Drag Pack 4.30:1 rear
gear for blistering speed. Plus, the drop-top makes it fun to drive even
when you're not burning the tires through the gears!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #7: 1966 Galaxie 500 XL R-Code 427
Become a Facebook Fan!
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!
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
