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 #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 #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 #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 #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 #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 #25: 1967 Camaro "Cherokee" Concept Show Car
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 This week, we have an extra special feature from the Brothers Collection. Back in 1967, Bill Mitchell and the GM styling division built a custom Camaro convertible called the "Cherokee", featuring styling touches that previewed the forthcoming 1968 Corvette. In this video, we not only feature the freshly restored original show car car, but speak with renowned customizer Charley Hutton about the car and it's meticulous restoration. Shot at the 2013 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals in Rosemont, IL.





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 #74: 1973 Camaro Z28 4-Speed Video
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - What starts off looking like a plain-Jane 1973 Camaro is really a pretty rare Z/28 with the optional stripe and wing delete option. Why would you delete the iconic stripes and wing from a Z/28? We're not sure, but this nearly all-original 48,000 mile survivor was ordered this way. Other features include the original blue vinyl top and "natural" colored vinyl interior. The 350 / 4-speed manual combo makes this car fun to drive, even if power levels were slipping by 1973. It's an unusual car, and one of the more sedate Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #63: 1971 Plymouth Road Runner 426 Hemi
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we're taking a look at a Hemi powered musclecar featuring a cartoon character in the grill. This 1971 Hemi Road Runner is a very limited production car that still retains a full-power 426 Hemi. It features outstanding details like the functional air grabber hood feeding fresh air to the 425 hp, 426 cube Hemi V-8. Inside, you will find a bench seat, a four-speed handle and little else. The exterior styling is bold with the new-for-1971 styling and the distinctive reflective stripe. It is one of many Hemi powered cars in the Brothers Collection and it is our Muscle Car Of The Week!





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 #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.





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.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #9: 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Factory Sunroof
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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!
