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 #4: 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z16
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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 #40: 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 R Racing School Car
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek 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 #16: 1970 Ford Torino GT 429 SCJ Convertible
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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 #24: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A Panther Pink
Dodge Muscle Cars came in a wide variety of crazy colors back in the day... come to think of it, they do now, too! This 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A is a great example of an awesome car in an over-the-top color. The Challenger T/A was the Trans Am race car for the street. It featured a beefed-up 340 V8 with a stronger block, special cam, free-breathing heads, and the super cool 6-Pack triple carb setup. The car had racy styling cues from bumper to bumper, and although they claimed 290 HP, these were potent performers embarrassing many cars with much more under the hood. However, the most notable feature on this example from the Brothers Collection is the paint code FM3, Panther Pink.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #19: 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 440-6 Convertible
Muscle Car Of The Week Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 There are many "one of one" cars in the Brothers Collection, cars that may be the only on made with specific options, engine, or color. This episode features one of the more significant 1/1 cars in the Collection.. a 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 440 6-Pack Convertible! Plymouth only made 17 440 'Cuda convertibles in '71, 12 were automatics, and this is the only one in color code Y9 Tawny Gold. This car is also unique in that it is one of only 2 wit ht the optional Shaker hood and Billboard stripes on the quarters. It is a fully documented original car certified by Mopar expert Galen Govier, and it is regarded as the highest-optioned 'Cuda convertible built. Truly a unique car!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #41: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 427 Roadster
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements... the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!





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 #8: 34.2 Mile 1970 Chevelle SS LS6
What would you pick if you had a time machine to take you back to the year of your favorite Muscle Car? If a 1970 Chevelle SS with the 450 HP LS6 454 winds your watch, than we have the time machine for you! This 100% original and correct LS6 only has 34.2 actual miles on the odometer, and it is one of the favorites in the Brothers Collection! It has been called the highest horsepower and lowest mileage Muscle Car left in the world! Watch the video to learn all about this car and how it survived in "as-new" condition all these years.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #33: 1971 Olds Cutlass 442 W30 Convertible
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 convertible is one of less than 110 known W30 442 drop-tops built, and even though power levels began to slide in 1971, this one still stands tall. Wearing a unique shade of Bittersweet paint with a black top and interior, this W30 boasts a 455 V8, a TH 400 automatic trans, a bench seat, and column shift. Another cool car from the Brothers Collection.





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #21: 1970 Dodge Super Bee 440 6-Pack
Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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!





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





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #10: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T HEMI
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 This week, we're featuring a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI as our pick for Muscle Car Of The Week from the Brothers Collection. There were only 157 of these cars built, and this Plum Crazy Purple version has all the right parts to make it one of the most prized Mopars in the collection. Starting with a 425 HP 426 HEMI V8, Pistol Grip 4-speed, dual 4 barrel carbs and more, it's a run and gun racer for the street!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #23: 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary 111 Miles
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376?ref=h l 1979 marked the 10th anniversary of the Pontiac Trans Am. In this episode, we spotlight a 1979 10th Anniversary Trans Am from the Brothers Collection that shows a mere 111 miles on the odometer! This one features the Pontiac 400 V8 and four-speed transmission, and is the very same car owned by Pontiac advertising executive Jim Wangers and featured in the movie "Joe Dirt". Although some consider this car to be overdone with its five color hood bird, two-tone paint, & silver interior, we really like the styling of this 1 of 1817 made Anniversary edition.
