The early third-generation Corvettes are among the favorites of the style, as they sport minimal trim and they pre-date the heavier 5-mph crash bumpers and performance robbing emissions equipment.   The 1971 models did see a reduction in compression ratios as a first step down toward the lo-po mid '70s cars, but this 1971 LT1 still cranked out 330 HP and impressive torque in a fantastic-looking Corvette.   It's from the Brothers Collection, and we enjoyed our time with it!

 

 

http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This 1970 Chevelle SS 396 features some great features, ranging from the 350 HP 396 (402) under the hood, sport suspension, and SS appearance package, to the bucket seats, tilt wheel, air conditioning, and power convertible top.    We also like it because it is a survivor... a fairly low-milage car with original paint and equipment still installed.    It's one of the more unique Chevelles in the Brothers Collection.

The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most popular Muscle Cars of all time, and many times we overlook the factory-built "hot rod" versions of the Camaro.    The original Z/28s were far more than just a striped Camaro, as they featured a high-revving 302, tuned suspension, better brakes, and much more.    This Butternut Yellow '68 is one of the Z/28s in the Brothers Collection and is our pick for Muscle Car Of The Week.

 

This week, we're bangin' the gears on a super low-production 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 with the L89 aluminum head option!  It's a beautiful LeMans Blue 4-speed car from the Brothers Collection, and it's our Muscle Car Of The Week!

http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we spend some time in a beautiful 1971 Corvette powered by the 425 HP LS6 454 V8.   This car is finished in War Bonnet Yellow, and is one of less than 200 built in this combination.     From the Brothers Collection.

 

 

The Camaro was all-new for 1970, and the Z28 is loaded with the also-new LT1 350.   The LT1 350 had a higher horsepower rating than the big block, and the Z28's performance tuned suspension was one of the best you could get in '70.    This Forrest Green Z is a low-mile car from the Brothers Collection.

http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the 80 built in '68 featuring the legendary RPO L88 427 V8.   This is as close to a full-race Corvette as you could buy in '68, with heavy-duty suspension & brakes, and a lack of creature comforts like a radio or heater.   From the Brothers Collection.
