(Updated: May 16, 2023) The Brothers Collection just may be one of the largest private muscle car collections in the world. It includes over 600 highly sought-after collectible cars and sits in a private 130,000-square-foot warehouse in Salem, Oregon, with an estimated value of over $500 million.
The unassuming car museum doesn’t look like a museum from the outside, but the inside looks like a Hollywood car dealer movie set. The walls are dressed with vintage automobilia, and the cars are organized in perfect rows by brand, make, and model.
The entire Brothers Car Collection is made up of rare and vintage sports cars, one-of-a-kind, one-off, consecutive serial-numbered racing cars, supercars, exotic cars, classic brass-era cars, and luxury cars. The largest portion of the car collection is from the 1960s and 1970s, with the largest share belonging to American-made Detroit Steel Muscle cars.
The Detroit Steel Muscle cars are all lined up in rows by category and include the powerhouses of the 60s and 70s. The most dominant marques are Dodge Challengers, Dodge Chargers R/T, Plymouth Cudas, Superbirds & Roadrunners, Ford Galaxies, Shelby Mustangs, specialty Camaros, and vintage 50s and 60s Corvettes.
The entire collection is kept in pristine condition and glistens under the spotlights. Each car is labeled with a unique plaque that describes the vehicle’s brand, model, year, and origin.
Also included in the Brother Massive Car Collection are some perfect-condition Firebirds and Trans-Ams, Camaro COPOs and Yenkos, Mustangs and Shelbys, Tuckers, a Ford GT, and even a handful of AMC Javelins and Gremlins. Put it this way, if it was a muscle car in the 60s or 70s, odds are it’s here in the Brother’s Collection.
Scattered on the outskirts of the muscle cars are some rare cars that were geared for speed. They include street racers, road and track open-wheel racers, funny cars, dragsters, and stock cars on display.
Some specialty rare collectible cars include a Bizzarini 5300 GT Strada, rare Jaguars such as the XK120 and XK150, a handful of Maseratis from the 50s, and awesome Ferraris from the 50s and 60s. Topping that is an awesome lineup of rare Porsches, Mercedes, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis.
Beyond that, there is a special section carved out for rare and pricey sports and production race cars, including a limited edition Lamborghini Countach, a Lamborghini Aventador, a custom orange Maserati MC 12, a 1974 Pantera, and two 1974 De Tomaso Pantera.
Supercars include the Ferrari 40, the Ferrari F50, and the Enzo Ferrari, and Ferrari doesn’t stop there. On display are over 20 rare Ferraris dating back to the 1950s.
Even more, the Brothers Car Collection includes a 1959 Autobianchi Bianchina, a post-World War II mini-car, a Dual Ghia, a Tucker, and some American Brass Era classics, such as a Chrysler Imperial. Lastly, the collection hits the water with antique wooded hydroplane power boats.
All in all, the Brothers Car Collection is a time machine that takes you back to when cars were king. But, strategically, the Brothers Car Collection is not open to the public. It is only open for specially scheduled events and private showings.
