  1. Factory Options in 40s & 50s

    The "rain drop" top was a show car feature. It was used on the LeSabre and several other Concept Cars. It did work very well from all accounts. But there was a safety concern with putting it in use. I do not believe that it ever made production.
  2. Factory Options in 40s & 50s

    To the best of my knowledge yes. This would have been a dealer installed kit. That is why you see variation with continental kits. They came from several suppliers and were not built all the same.
  3. Educated Guess as to Year - Make - Model ?

    Would be a sporty and stylish way to take a hog to market!
  4. Very Sad (and I'm not talking about the car)

    Remember to always pay attention. Always leave yourself an out. Be ready to react. Be safe out there.

  9. Tires - Brass era

    If the tire issue becomes tiring I would be happy to give the Hudson a new home. Wonderful looking automobile!
  10. Opinions on a "questionable" deal or scam?

    Tell him you are sending an inspector and need a street address where the car is located. I bet it will be in a different state. Then tell him it is a nationwide inspection service and they can look at it anyplace. I bet he will vanish.
  11. Slotless screwdriver needed...anyone have one?

    You need a left handed screw driver. I think Lowes has them. Usually next to the board stretchers and muffler bearings.
