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.

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.





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 #38: 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI Mr. Norm's
http://www.facebook.com/MuscleCarOfTheWeek http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com 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 #36: 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II 426 Hemi Convertible
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - This one reminds us of the Big Bad Wolf dressed up in Granny's nightgown... a 425 HP 426 Hemi V8 under the hood of a 1966 Plymouth Belvedere II convertible wearing color code 661 Metallic Mauve. Yeah, it's pink. And yeah, it's a baaad machine! Plymouth made 10 '66 Belvedere II Hemi drop-tops, 6 automatics, and only one in this color, making this one of the rarest Mopars in the Brothers Collection. It's been perfectly restored, but it still features its original driveline. And because it's a 1 of 1, it's been restored to it's original Metallic Mauve. Would it be more fun in black or red? Who knows, but we wouldn't turn it down!





Muscle Car Of The Week Video #16: 1970 Ford Torino GT 429 SCJ Convertible

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 #50: 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR Sassy Grass Green Video
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we're featuring a 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR wearing the ultra-bright Sassy Grass Green paint color. These cars were direct descendants of the Trans Am racing program, and while they are highly sought-after today, they were not hot sellers when new. This is one of several AARs in the Brothers Collection, and we show you the details in this week's episode!





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 #35: 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT 429 Super Cobra Jet Pilot Car
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com This 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT from the Brothers Collection packs all the cool go-fast parts you could get on this car - a 375 horsepower 429 V8, a 4-speed manual transmission, and 4.30:1 rear gears making it the Super Cobra Jet package. It's bright red, sounds mean, and runs hard. Even cooler is that this was a Mercury pilot car, which meant it was destined to be crushed after assembly. Find out the story in this week's Muscle Car Of The Week!





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

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 #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 #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.
