With over $ 28,000 invested in this car it is well on the way to being an amazing build. The goal was to build something different ! Hudson Hornets ruled NASCAR in the early 1950’s. This car was being built to be fast yet dependable, be able to corner, and still have a classic look: Resto Mod. Why build a Ford or Chevy when you can build a real Hudson Hornet. Having to close a family business has forced me to sell this project. Our loss could be your gain!! Car is located in West Phoenix, Az.



Sorry No Trades

I see that you have removed the "tugs" that ran between the firewall and the front sub frame rails. They sort of looked like braces, but that were tethered by rubber straps on one end. They were there to help diminish the drumming noise that the firewall makes without them. Unibody cars and these Hudsons, in particular, have a lot of road noise. Now would be a good time to do some research into the issue and make some changes and additions. I can remember the old guys that drove these cars when they were still relatively new would stuff old rugs and blankets between the rear wheel houses and the rear fenders and pound them in hard to lessen the noise that those wheel houses created. Now would also be a good time to install a Hornet 308 engine. If this car is a '50, then it is a Super, Commodore, or a Pacemaker, but not a Hornet. The Pacemakers are a few inches shorter and usually easily identifiable, but I can't tell from the photos.

A 1950 Hudson Hornet would be a very rare car, 1 of 1. Are you sure it is a 1950 Hudson Hornet?


All Buicks are Roadmasters, aren't they?

Hudson SOLD

Yes the VIN shows it as a Pacemaker. With all the extra parts the new owner can make it into a Hornet Clone or call it whatever he likes. Thanks for all the input I appreciate your comments.
