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.

 

This episode of Muscle Car Of The Week highlights a 1-year only 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A, the street version of the Trans Am race car Challenger T/A.    Of the 2399 built, this is one of 1410 automatic cars, and one of around 50 to wear a triple black paint scheme.   These cars have the looks and performance to make Muscle Car fans drool, and this one is as sinister as they come.   The 340 Six Pack is a screamer, and the racy looks are unique to the 1970 T/A.  

 

The 1971 Hemi 'Cuda evolved slightly in design from 1970 with the addition of the fender "gills" and the revised 4-light nose and grille, but the good news is that the mighty 425 horse power 426 cubic-inch hemispherical headed V8 remained unchanged in power ratings for 1971.    This version is wearing Tor-Red, a bright color that is certainly not going to be missed when trying to evade the law during late-night street competitions of speed.    One of the coolest aspects of this car is that it is a largely unrestored survivor, one of only 48 automatics produced.     It calls the Brothers Collection home.  

The 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda convertible is one of the rarest most sought after muscle cars ever made. Production of the 1970 426 Hemi-powered monster convertible only reached 14 units, with nine  being automatics and the remaining six being four speed manuals. This week, we bring you an Arctic White automatic car with a stunning red interior and contrasting black top. The car is loaded with options including power steering, brakes… even power windows and top!   The Brothers Collection is truly a muscle car fan's fantasyland, with this week's 'Cuda at the summit.  

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!
