Today, cars with factory-installed 426 Hemi V8s are some of the highest-valued Muscle Cars in existence.   The lure of limited production quantities and the power of the 426 Hemi combine to drive the pricetags of these cars beyond the average collector.   So what’s all the fuss about a Hemi Road Runner?    How about quarter mile times of 13.54 @ 105 ½ MPH as logged by Car & Driver Magazine?    The Hemi engine was an expensive upgrade, but it did get you a solid performer that was ready to go off the showroom floor.   And at the end of the day, we like Ma Mopar’s mission to bring performance back to the common customer.   

This week, A 1 of 5 made 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 440+6 4-speed convertible.   With all the great features, styling, and performance, you’d think there would have been millions of these cars sold!  From the Brothers Collection. 

This week, we take a spin in a sweet 1968 Dodge Charger loaded with a 426 Hemi and  4-speed... But we really like the color, too!  It's believed to be the only one of its kind.

The 1969 1/2 Plymouth Road Runner A12 is a hopped-up version of the popular Road Runner but features a 440 cube V8 wearing 3 2-barrel carbs and boasting an advertised 390 HP.    These cars have a cool light weight lift-off hood,  no hubcaps, and a bad attitude.   From the Brothers Collection.
