In 1966, Ford sold more Mustangs than in any other year, and we have one of the rarest ever.   Join us as we check out a 1966 289 K Code High Performance convertible that is hiding an extremely unusual option!   From The Brothers Collection.
The 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 serves several purposes… with the first being to make the Mustang legal for competition in the red-hot SCCA Trans AM road race series  The other purpose of the BOSS 302 was purely to provide us wannabe racers with an at-home-player version of the Trans AM racer that was ready to rock right off the showroom floor.    These cars featured all the style of the track-only cars, but were 100% street legal.    And they weren’t just for looks, either… the BOSS 302 has a long list of performance improvements over the base model Mustangs.  From The Brothers Collection.  
The original GT350 hit the streets… and tracks… in 1965 and is still regarded as one of the most capable American performance cars ever built.     The ‘65 was a no-nonsense purpose built street legal racer in a Mustang 2+2 body comprised of hand-picked parts and smart modifications made by the Shelby team in Venice, CA.    It was light, nimble, and basic, and it rocked on the street or track.   The Shelby name has since been applied to just about everything you can think of, and there is no doubt that some Shelbys remained more true to the original concept than others, but the 2016 GT350 is one hundred percent deserving of the snake and stripes.    From The Brothers Collection. 
There are many ways to have fun in a Candy Apple Red 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback 2+2 equipped with the new for ‘68 302 small block V8!   This week, we take one for a spin on Muscle Car Of The Week from The Brothers Collection.
Apparently Ford felt that dull driving was a sickness in need of a cure, so when they marketed the 1969 Ford Torino GT, they were sure to point out that the car was anything but dull.   Like all automakers, Ford wanted to captivate younger new car buyers, and the promise of driving excitement and fun was the ticket to the game.    This ‘69 Torino not only boasts a fun-inducing power convertible top, it’s got 428 cubic inches of happy pill under the hood!   From The Brothers Collection. 
When Ford rolled out the Mustang for 1965, Carroll Shelby’s team immediately went to work building a road-racing version called the Shelby GT350.     The GT350 still stands as one of the pinnacle American performance cars ever built, and this is one of the “Winningist” Rs ever!   From The Brothers Collection. 
Bobby Unser 1969 Torino



Welcome to the 200th episode of Muscle Car Of The Week! For this special presentation, we’re sharing an exclusive interview with 3-time Indy 500 winner Bobby Unser recorded at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago featuring the amazing 1969 Ford Torino Pike’s Peak racer he drove to victory in 1969. The legendary cast of characters in the story includes Bunkie Knudsen, Smokey Yunick, Bill Stroppe, Holman & Moody, and many others, and Unser tells the fascinating story as if it happened yesterday. The car is a purpose-built stock car built by Bill Stroppe and Holman & Moody and is powered by a Smokey Yunick built Boss 429. Unser had not seen the car since ‘69, but he was surprised to learn that the car remains in as-raced condition today. He went on to share many stories of racing in general, and how to be a winner not only on the track but also in life, and a great recollection of a huge party after a winning snowmobile racing season! The display was a huge hit at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, and the car is a very special piece of racing history in the Brothers Collection. Enjoy the show, and thanks for watching Muscle Car Of The Week!
