The Dodge Charger is one of the most iconic Muscle Car designs of all time, with its squared-off monolithic shape and imposing presence.   Our subject is equipped with the R/T package, and is powered by the factory installed 425 HP 426 Hemi V8 and 3-speed automatic transmission, a combination only found in a few hundred of the 20,000 plus 1969 Charger R/Ts built.    From the hidden headlights up front to the NASCAR inspired quick-fill fuel door high on the quarter panel, this car means business.   It is part of the Brothers Collection, and has seen just over 50,000 hammer-down, tire smoking miles.   

http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we take a look at 1/12 of the total production of 1970 Dodge Challenger convertibles built with the 426 Hemi V8.    Of the 12, 9 were US cars, with the other three built for export.    This is one of the nicest restorations in the Brothers Collection, and that is saying a lot!
 

This week, we bring you an extremely rare 1970 Plymouth Cuda 340 convertible, one of only 19 shifted by a 3-speed manual transmission.     When we see a stick on the floor, we tend to think 4-speed, but in this case, someone ordered the 3-speed along with a host of other interesting options like a power top and the factory luggage rack.   It's one of the great Cudas in the Brothers Collection.   

The 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda AAR is one of the most distinctive Muscle Cars ever to leave the factory, with its striking strobe stripe, aggressive black nose and scoop, and of course, the free-breathing 340 6-Pack V8 under the hood.
