Great color in Yellow and Brown really catches the eye. I have lost my storage space and need to sell now. Am asking $13,500.00 OBO which is a steal on this collectible Hudson.

This Hudson could be a great car but I don't like any of those colors. The yellow is too bright and I don't like the brown on the lower section. The roof looks black to me, a three-toned Hudson. Ouch! The seller's external pictures show the car from a lower angle and I think he knows something's not right. The colors catch my eye alright......in a bad way. On the plus side it does have nice chrome & interior. IMO a lighter cream color with a black top would look better.

I wouldn't exactly say I hate the car but I prefer cars of that era to have a more original appearance instead of looking "jazzed-up" and overdone.  I'd like to see some better overall external pictures that show the complete car from top to bottom.

The 1951 Hudson foldout doesn't show any two-tone cars, but with the trim piece as a divider, it's way too tempting. Everything else looks pretty good to me!

I think doing something different with the wheels would help, but my eyes are always drawn to wheels. Yellow with dog dishes, especially below the brown panels, just looks weak. Bigger caps, trim rings, paint 'em brown, something.

We are openly discussing a 3rd party car.  I like the step downs. I owned a 1949 Commodore 8 4 door. It's just my opinion they are best left a single conservative tone. Most 2 door hardtops look good in 2 tone but most fast backs do not.  Essentially this Hudson has no hard C pillar break and so the coves are the only two color option.  It's an adaptation since I dont think Hudson saw two toning as the way to promote.  Yes it seems it was available but not emphasized.

I remember reading in a WTN magazine years ago that the factory stopped two tones below the belt line in 49 I think? Would not want to bet much on this memory. Any factory photos of 51-53 cars with a two tone on them? Auburnseeker might have a factory broucher. Not picking apart the car, just curious.

I agree with you Bryan. I've always thought that two-toning disrupted the flow of the lines. I don't mean to say that I hated it, just in most cases I found it needless.
