Latest Muscle Car Of The Week Episodes
Ford built muscular versions of nearly every car they made during the 1960s, and this 1964 Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe is a great example of how they turned a hum-drum family commuter into a stylish mini-muscle car that packed a serious punch. This Sports Coupe escaped the fate of a straight 6 in favor of a Hi-Po 289 V8 screwed to a 4-speed manual box. The K-Code version churned out 271 HP through increased compression, free-breathing intake and exhaust, a solid cam, and other hop-up goodies. The added bonus is the good looks of the Sports Coupe, wearing a slick Raven Black suit with a bright red interior. Extra-cool is the fact that it is all original and unrestored. It's our Muscle Car Of The Week from the Brother's Collection.

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.
Any authentic Yenko Camaro is a special car, and this one is perhaps even more unique. As the popularity of the Yenko name grew, other Chevrolet dealers were permitted to sell Yenko branded cars under license. This Daytona Yellow '69 Yenko Camaro is one such animal, being sold new by Jack Douglass Chevrolet in Hinsdale, IL. Jack Douglass was the authorized Yenko dealer for the Illinois and Wisconsin territory, in addition to being a high performance Chevy dealer of his own. This Camaro features the L72 427 V8 and all the COPO 9561 and COPO 9737 package goodies, and is one of several unique Yenko cars in the Brothers Collection.
This week's video features a car that looks sedate as can be but reveals a startlingly different personality once the key is turned. The factory-built 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Lightweight features an R-Code 427 for power, and nearly all the non-essential items have been deleted or lightened for better drag strip performance in the Super Stock NHRA class. There were around 200 built, and this one is as true to form as they come. One of the many factory lightweight Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection.
