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 #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 #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 #43: 1961 Ford Starliner Video
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The world was a different place back in 1961, and the space-age styling of the 1961 Ford Starliner tells the tale. This car technically pre-dates the Muscle Car era, but the available 401 HP 390 made it a screamer on the street and stock car tracks. This week's car has been up-fitted with a 427 cube V8 topped with 3 2-barrel carbs, a setup you could get in 1963, but it looks right at home in the bay of this Starliner. There are many neat styling features on this car, including the thin-pillared sloping rear glass with zinc plated and polished stars, the subtitle tail fins, and the twin "rocket Exhaust" tail lights. It's one car from the Brothers Collection that is out of this world!





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 #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 #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 #15: Supercharged 1957 Ford Ranchero
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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 #57: 1970 Plymouth Superbird 426 Hemi
There is nothing subtle about this week's Muscle Car Of The Week.      This Everything about this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird helps it to stand out in a crowd... the brilliant TorRed color, the high rear wing, the aerodynamic nose, and of course, the growling 426 Hemi V8 under the hood.    However, this very car was chosen by some not-so-brilliant outlaws to be the getaway car from a Harrah's Casino heist in Reno, Nevada.    Although they might have thought the speed of a NASCAR superspeedway flyer like this would have helped them escape, they were quickly apprehended and the car taken from them.      Today, the car lives a much more lawful existence in the Brothers Collection, where it resides in restored glory safe from wrongdoers.   We certainly don't condone unlawful acts, but we bet the getaway ride was fun!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #8: 34.2 Mile 1970 Chevelle SS LS6

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 #1: 1969 Camaro ZL-1 #1!
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The first episode of Muscle Car Of The Week features a the very first 1969 Camaro with option package ZL-1, complete with the original all-aluminum 427 V8 and an amazing history. This is the first of 69 ZL-1 Camaros ever built, and was delivered to Fred Gibb Chevrolet on New Year's Eve in 1968. Gibb and his crew transformed the car into a drag race record setter, and drove the car in races all over the country. In this video, Charley Lillard takes us through the car and tells us the stories about the original car and its restoration. Today there are less than 40 original ZL-1 Camaros still in existence. You can guess next week's muscle car over the week on our Facebook page.





The Correct Way To Pour Engine Oil From A Bottle Video V8TV
It seems that nearly every photograph, commercial, and TV show shows people pouring engine oil with the bottle turned the wrong way. It may seem trivial, but when used properly, the smart design of an oil bottle will prevent glugging and spilling.
