Comedian superstar Kevin Hart is well-known for his stand-up and movie appearances, but he’s also a die-hard car enthusiast and collector. He also has a particular affinity for classic American muscle cars. You might remember a few years back when he bought his entire group of nine close-knit friends their childhood dream cars. That gesture made headlines everywhere and as of recently, he has announced that he and his friends will be starring in their own show, called Kevin Hart’s Muscle Car Crew. It might be the case that Kevin Hart has too many cars, evidenced recently by his custom 1977 Ford Bronco that will be hitting the auction block at this year’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas.
You Might Know This Bronco
If this particular Bronco seems familiar to you, it’s because it appeared on an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage alongside the Sherp ATV. This one-of-a-kind Ford Bronco isn’t your typical Bronco. It’s pretty obvious that Hart customized almost every square inch of the truck to his own specifications, and the modifications list is quite extensive. It’s powered by a 5.0-liter fuel-injected 302ci V8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. The 44-year old car comes with push-button start thanks to a Crane electronic ignition system. The roll cage is paint-matched to the Bronco’s red exterior. All of the exterior trim pieces like the LED headlight housings, the window cranks, side mirrors, door handles, and fender flares are accented in black.
Is There Anything Stock on Kevin Hart’s Bronco?
We honestly need a list of everything on Kevin Hart’s custom Bronco that is stock, it’d probably be much, much shorter. The interior isn’t lacking either. The front bucket seats, yes that’s right, bucket seats, can recline to your desired cruising position. The seats, the rear bench, the door panel lining, dashboard, and roll bar padding have all been upholstered in black leather with red accent stitching. In the matching center console is where you’ll find the Kenwood bluetooth head unit wired up to a 10-inch subwoofer, four JL Audio speakers, and a hidden Alpine amp.
Crazy enough, those aren’t even all the modifications. While we’re sure Kevin Hart has his own reasons for selling his crazy 1977 Ford Bronco, it’s crazy considering how much custom work and money has gone into this build. If you want Kevin Hart’s resto-mod for yourself, you can bid on it at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction alongside this cool Jeep Gladiator Bandit Outlaw Edition. The custom Bronco has an estimated value of around $57,000 (talk about some terrible ROI for Kevin Hart) according to Jay Leno’s Garage, but there’s no telling what this celebrity-owned truck will fetch with no reserve.
