Default 1937 hudson terraplane sedan delivery..Rare?

Just wondering if the hudson terraplane sedan delivery was a rare bird?
I had a chance to get one quite a while back. Buddy of mine sent me some pictures and said all were for sale. Was on a farm in Mosses lake Washington many years ago. I have a polaroid picture of it. There were also many other old cars and trucks there too. Was looking through old pictures and found the hudson picture and just wondered how rare it was.
Hav'nt ever seen another one.

That's a very cool van, but it is not a sedan delivery - it's a panel van/delivery. Sedan delivery is a much misused and abused definition. Even the brochure call it a panel delivery. A sedan delivery is made on the basis of a sedan body and passenger car chassis. A panel delivery is purpose made on a truck chassis. The panel van shown was built on the 'Big Boy' 3/4 ton pickup truck chassis.

The Logo on the panel looks very similar if not the same as the on in the sales brochure.

That would be a seldom-seen truck. I've seen only a few '37 pickups. I have a friend who sold a '37 pickup a few years ago for $10000 that was restored in the early seventies and needed re-restored. The panel-delivery is much rarer.

I got a soft spot .. okay, maybe a hard-on, for anything Hudson/Essex/Terraplane realted. I didn't start out that way, but HET stuff just started migrating my way. I'd be thrilled to own that beast, especially if it was sporting a 308.

I spent many years in the H-E-T Club and never saw one at a local or National event. One came up for sale outside New York City in the early 80's, but after checking it out, I decided to pass. Owner was asking $5,000 at a point in time where $1,000 would have been over priced. I have a couple photos I can dig out if you're interested in seeing another rusty truck.

OK...I found the photos I took in 1969. Looks like it was a '38 or '39 rather than a '37. No matter, rare is rare no matter what year. I wonder if the factory added the additional openings to the grill to aid in cooling?

By today's standards, it looks pretty damn nice, but believe me, in 1969, for the $5,000 asking price, a guy could have bought a fully restored coupe or sedan. A truck in need of a complete restoration or Hot Rodding, this panel was a $500- $750 piece.

Sure if not to much trouble, I would be interested in seeing those photos.

I don't think "rare" even begins to cover it, personally...

Wonder where all these deliveries went. The candy store is still in business.

I wish I would have bought this now. Would have made a very unique ride.
Ya, I would like to see the photo's mentioned. Also there were many other photo's. And a 4 door ragtop in a barn. All are low quality pictures taken with a polaroid pull out photo camera. I will try to post up some of the other photo's this weekend....
