1966 saw the introduction of the 426 Street Hemi, a slightly more docile version of the mighty 426 race version from the previous several years. In this video, we take a look at an otherwise unassuming 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 that features a Hemi / 4-speed punch, and is still in its original condition. From the Brothers Collection.

This week, we take a look at a version of one of the most popular Muscle Cars ever built, the Plymouth 'Cuda.    This particular car is a convertible, wearing a striking shade of EB5 Blue Fire Metallic paint with matching interior.   Under the hood is the high-revving 340 cubic inch V8.    It's part of the Brothers Collection.

There are many outstanding "Firsts" and "Lasts" in the Brothers Collection, but this car is a "First" twice, and a "Last" Once!    This is the very first 1971 Dodge Charger Hemi, which is also the first year for the new body style, and the last year for the 426 Hemi engine!    Being the pilot car, this one was not supposed to be sold to the public, as there are certain elements of the car that are not production ready.    However, it made it our of the factory alive, and was even sold new a Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge in Chicago.    It's a very cool story, and an even cooler car.
