Latest Muscle Car Of The Week Episodes
The early third-generation Corvettes are among the favorites of the style, as they sport minimal trim and they pre-date the heavier 5-mph crash bumpers and performance robbing emissions equipment. The 1971 models did see a reduction in compression ratios as a first step down toward the lo-po mid '70s cars, but this 1971 LT1 still cranked out 330 HP and impressive torque in a fantastic-looking Corvette. It's from the Brothers Collection, and we enjoyed our time with it!
Ford unleashed the BOSS 302 on the streets to make the Trans-Am version legal for racing, and today, the 1969 and 1970 BOSS 302s are favorites among Muscle Car fans as well as Mustang fans. This one is finished in Grabber Green, and is fitted with all the BOSS goodies… the 290 HP 302, 4-speed, sway bars front and rear, disc brakes, and of course, the good looks of the stripes, spoilers, and window slats. It's from The Brothers Collection, and is our Muscle Car Of The Week!
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.
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This 1970 Chevelle SS 396 features some great features, ranging from the 350 HP 396 (402) under the hood, sport suspension, and SS appearance package, to the bucket seats, tilt wheel, air conditioning, and power convertible top. We also like it because it is a survivor... a fairly low-milage car with original paint and equipment still installed. It's one of the more unique Chevelles in the Brothers Collection.
There are certain muscle cars that are wildly famous even though they have astoundingly low production numbers. This week's car is just such an animal. Here, we present the very first of the 8 1969 Pontiac Trans Am convertibles ever produced. All eight were painted white with blue stripes, but seven had blue interiors, and one had a white interior. Four are automatic transmission cars, and the other four have manual gearboxes. This car has the blue interior, and options like power windows and a power convertible top. It is powered by a RAIII Pontiac 400 and has just received an immaculate restoration. We spoke with restorer Gary Riley at the 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals about the uniqueness of this amazing car in the Brothers Collection.
The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most popular Muscle Cars of all time, and many times we overlook the factory-built "hot rod" versions of the Camaro. The original Z/28s were far more than just a striped Camaro, as they featured a high-revving 302, tuned suspension, better brakes, and much more. This Butternut Yellow '68 is one of the Z/28s in the Brothers Collection and is our pick for Muscle Car Of The Week.
