Craig Jackson Brings Rare ’70 Hemi ‘Cuda to Jay Leno’s Garage

Jay Leno had a special visitor in his garage: a vibrant purple 1970 Hemi ‘Cuda convertible. Craig Jackson, the owner from Barrett-Jackson auctions, joined Jay to showcase this remarkable car.

For those who don’t know much about cars, the 1970 Hemi ‘Cuda is a really cool muscle car. Plymouth, the company that made it, upgraded it with powerful engines like the 440 and the famous 426 Hemi. This made the ’70 Barracuda super fast and competitive.

The ’70 Hemi ‘Cuda also had a unique hood called the Shaker hood, and it came with different engine choices, including the powerful 426 Hemi, which was famous for racing. Because of its racing background and its cool convertible style, the ’70 Hemi ‘Cuda is really valuable to collectors. Only a few hundred were made, and even fewer had the Hemi engine.

Craig Jackson’s ’70 Hemi ‘Cuda is extra special because it was originally sold in the United Kingdom. It’s painted a cool purple color and has a luxurious white leather interior. It’s packed with fancy features like power windows and a convertible top that opens with a push of a button.

One really neat thing about Jackson’s ‘Cuda is the white stripe down the side. Normally, it’s black, but Jackson had it changed to white to match the rest of the car.

In a fun video on Jay Leno’s Garage, Craig Jackson talked about how he found and fixed up this awesome car. It’s a story that shows how much people love these old cars and how they keep them alive for everyone to enjoy.
