I have restored several Hudson in my Home Garage. However you are doing a more professional restoration and doing a good Job from the pictures.. We have to fabricate some lower panel rust repair too.

I have bought and sold a couple Parts from your Country using FED X. The only barrier is Shipping is high, but parts are available...Feel free to ask questions....

I hope this helps,

My name is Eugene, I'm from Russia.

It so happened that I have a small group of enthusiasts set about restoring vintage American cars. (Yes, even in Russia, too, there are shops that specialize in classic American cars :)) Before that, our team is mainly specialized in the repair of modern vehicles.

Very nice to see people here who are keen restoration of vintage cars that are restored with their own hands "live" history. I know how to love the car, to devote all his spare time. So you all know very well.

The problem is that we have here is almost impossible to get spare parts, so you have to restore what we have.

In Russia, uses the metric system of measurement - and most-inch bolts and nuts have to make by hand, since Sales do not.

There is also a problem for information about cars, because these cars have not been used. It is good that there are some online resources as you like your forum, even if it is a language barrier.

For more information about cars, and possibly buy the necessary spare parts decided to turn to you for advice and show what we do.

Currently working on the car Hudson Commodore, 1949, 6 cylinder inline engine, two-door coupe.

That's what he came to us:






And now something like this:



Tomorrow will try to lay out the process of restoration .... more

Sorry for the mistakes in the text - use an online translator :)

Eugene and Alexander,


The "Hudson Open Forum" is a good place to find parts and information for your Hudson, if you have not joined the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club yet.


Here is the link:


The registration is fairly simple and there is no cost to join.  This forum is run by the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club.
