1947 Hudson truck, not mine.


Recommended Posts

I've seen a few Hudson trucks posted on CL, they are ridiculously long, look like someone hacked together a car and a truck bed, and they are always flash rusted. So cool, but so hard to parallel park I imagine.

I am always wondering what happened to that blue one in Seattle that went begging for months for less money that this. It wasn't a runner though, so that may explain the difference.

 

Hey Xander, can you tell why there's an enormous gap behind the cab in this one?

Did he post the wrong photos.  I couldn't help but laugh when I read the description and saw 

"The interior is beautiful as well and what is still hooks up still works and lights up, even the clock still ticks! I’ve cleaned out the interior out and most of the undercarriage, I have the bench seat too, it’s just sitting in the shed."

It is the short bed on the 3/4 ton big boy. All you need is the stake pockets and bed frame supports to build a new bed the correct length. Have done it a few times. You could cut 7 inches out of the frame, if you want the short bed. Best thing to do is stretch the cab 7 inches by using coupe doors. Then everything will fit, and have more room in the cab. Bed rail mounts from the factory might have to be moved, if it is a factory short bed from a 40-42 truck. I do not think Hudson made a short bed in 46-47, from the factory. Maybe someone knows if that is true?
