  1. Hudsons at Hershey, 2017!

    The booth is now open! Stop by and see us if you have any interest in (or are curious about) Hudsons, Essexes, or Terraplanes! Any Hudson enthusiasts who are in the Carlisle area on Saturday evening, Oct. 7, might want to stop by Hoss' Steak and Sea House, 1151 Harrisburg Pike, Carlisle, PA 17013. We have arranged for a room at 6PM, for Hudson enthusiasts and members of the H-E-T Club. Join us (no reservations needed) and "talk Hudsons' ! ! For more info on this or other Hershey-area Hudson activities during the Hershey car meet, phone Jon Battle at (703) 986-8785, from Thursday (about 6 PM) through Sunday noon. (Phone is disconnected at other times.)
  2. Mirror re-silvering

    Chaudron Glass in Baltimore re-silvered my beveled 1937 interior rearview mirror at a very reasonable price. 410-685-1568, One word of caution: I have been told that rearview mirror silvering is somehow 'grayed' so that it won't reflect headlights so brightly at night. I have no idea if this is true. The re-silvering on my mirror is the same as on any mirror.
  3. 1954 Hudson Jet

    Is there any contact information available, should someone be interested?
  4. You might want to be more specific. In 1937 (for instance) there were two wheels, the plain black one and the "banjo" wheel. Possibly in 1938 as well. And I'm not sure that the two years were interchangeable (though you may know).
  5. Just a reminder that the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club will be represented at the Hershey, Pa. fall meet on Oct. 4 through 7, at our trailer in the Red Field (the farthest field to the east, in front of the "old" stadium), space RNE 24-25. Sign up for membership, enjoy a cup of fresh coffee and a donut, rest your bones in our comfy camp chairs, leave or read notes on our bulletin board, and temporarily "park" that heavy generator you've been lugging around the flea market. We need a volunteers to staff the booth, and Hudsons to display. Please contact me if interested. Many Hudson enthusiasts choose to stay at the Carlisle Quality Inn, at the intersection of Rtes. 11 and I-81, near Carlisle -- about 35 miles west of Hershey. A block of rooms there has been negotiated at a discount, for Hudson enthusiasts. There'll be a hospitality room at the Inn on Friday and Saturday afternoons. On Saturday night we gather for dinner at Hoss' Steak and Sea House, a couple miles west on Rte. 11, at 6 PM; no reservations needed, just show up! On Sunday morning the 8th (the day after Hershey ends) we hold an all-Hudson flea market behind the motel from 7 AM to noon; no registration or fees, just bring along your Hudson parts to sell. If you have any interest in Hudsons, Essexes or Terraplanes please check in with us at Hershey or the motel at Carlisle. You can meet other folks with the same interest, learn more about these great cars, and maybe find a part you've been searching for. E-mail me for any additional information: Jon Battle,, drop the xxx before mailing.
  6. Looking for a Certain Truck

    If your father owned the truck when it was old enough to be regarded as a collector's item (like, in the 1980's or 90's) there might be a chance it survived. But as has been pointed out, without the VIN number, how would you know you had found the exact truck? Either you have to go through your dad's old paperwork and hope to find an old registration or copy of the title, and thus obtain the VIN. Once you have the number, you could contact Chevy clubs, old truck clubs, etc. and send them the number, so they could check their current rosters to see if the truck is still listed. Or, you will have to trace the path of the truck's ownership after your father sold it. Does he recall to whom he sold it?
  7. Substitute for Marvel Model V carburetor 1930 Essex

    If you haven't already done so, you might want to pose this question on the Hudson Open Forum at . It may be that Essex owners have found an acceptable substitute, or someone might suggest where your friend could purchase an original Marvel V.
  8. 1937 Chrysler will not go into reverse

    Glad to help. I have the 1940 version of the Borg-Warner overdrive retro-fitted into my car, and for some reason it allows me to shift into reverse even when OD is enabled. You probably have the first generation OD which requires that you lock out OD before attempting a shift into reverse.
  9. 1937 Chrysler will not go into reverse

    Does it happen to have overdrive?
  10. 1930's Chevy radio for sale

    The receiver / speaker box isn't from a Chevy as it has the "DPCD" Chrysler Corp. nameplate on it. But in my experience the "box" for any make of 1930's radio tends to be worth less than the control head (which you have) anyway. You could probably check around Ebay to see how much money people are actually getting for the control heads. For instance, there's a similar one on Ebay right now -- minus its finish plate: You can watch just what people are willing to pay for it.
  11. Is there any indication in the book of which model or year it is speaking of?

    What year(s) does this book cover? Or, are there any dates on the bulletins that would suggest a particular era?
  13. Wanted 29 hudson coupe or roadster

    You may also want to put this on the Hudson club's forum at I know of a '29 coupe in a restoration shop, where the basic body and woodwork is mostly done but the owner lost interest. Obviously there is a LOT to do but the heavy lifting is already done. I'm not sure whether the shop's owners are interested in selling but I could make some inquiries if you like. However, I'm guessing you want something complete, not a project!
  14. Welcome Hudson Enthusiasts!

    Frankiero, you will probably get more results if you post a separate message (here at the Hudson section of the AACA forum), instead of tacking your message to the back of Peter's message. I would suggest you also post your question over at the Hudson club's forum, at . It's very active.
