Rusty 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda Is What Barn Find Dreams Are Made Of

Rusty 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda Is What Barn Find Dreams Are Made Of Even a rough shape, this 'Cuda is racking up the bids. Because Mopar! It's always surprising what some people will tuck away in their barns or garages and let the cars waste away for years. This rusty 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda currently listed for sale on eBay is a sad example of that, and as hard as it is to see such an amazing car in poor condition, this is exactly what fuels barn find hunters in the first place.

He received the car in July of this year.

Comedian Kevin Hart sustained what are being described as “serious” injuries to his back after his 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda named “Menace” wrecked out early in the morning on September 1. Hart wasn’t driving, but instead was a passenger when the driver, Jared S. Black, lost control of the heavily modified ‘Cuda on Mulholland Highway in Malibu, California. The Plymouth careened through a guardrail and rolled down an embankment, crushing the roof.

Kevin Hart’s Wrecked Car was Speedkore’s 1970 “Menace” ‘Cuda.

Kevin Hart’s Wrecked Car was Speedkore’s 1970 “Menace” ‘Cuda. Over Labor Day weekend, comedian and actor Kevin Hart was involved in a car accident in LA. The car was a 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda built by Speedkore.

Back in July, Hart proudly displayed Menace on social media. The funny man has an affinity for American muscle cars, particularly those which have been modified to boost performance. This particular 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda was packing a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 we all know by the Hellcat name. Built by SpeedKore Performance Group, the car is something an inexperienced driver should not handle.

Menace was a star at the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas, where it made its public debut. Not only does it pack serious power, the car features a carbon-fiber hood, front fenders, front bumper, valance, and header panel. That and other lightweighting measures netted a curb weight of just 3,400 pounds. SpeedKore reinforced the subframe to improve handling.

Before the Crash: Kevin Hart’s 1970 ’Cuda

Before the Crash: Kevin Hart’s 1970 ’Cuda Kevin Hart’s 1970 ’Cuda—which was recently involved in an accident that left the comedian with a serious back injury—is no stranger to the HOT ROD family. The car was originally built as a SEMA Show car by SpeedKore, a company that's pushed boundaries by utilizing carbon fiber instead of the more traditional steel, and author Christopher Campbell described some of the build philosophy in a May 2017 Mopar Muscle article: "The bold Mopar colors of the late '60s and early '70s look great, but they're too brazen for this build.

A third occupant was in the car, Rebecca Broxterman, who is engaged to Black and is also Hart’s wife’s personal trainer. According to the California Highway Patrol report, first responders had to extract two people out of the car because they were trapped. Broxterman, who was sitting in the backseat, escaped with only minor injuries. Hart was able to return to his nearby home, then seek medical attention.

While it’s fortunate nobody was injured more seriously or killed, Menace might not be so fortunate. Photographs of the crash show the muscle car has been extensively damaged, although details aren’t available and might not be for some time. There’s the sad and very real possibility this was the Plymouth ‘Cuda’s final ride into the sunset.
