Terraplanes, Hudsons, and Essexes!!!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by patrick66, Jul 14, 2008.

  1. OK, I know there are a few HAMB'ers that have the fine, fine automobiles and trucks that the Hudson Motor Car Company produced from 1909 - 1957. Let's see 'em!

    Here is my '37 Terraplane Model 71 Brougham, with a factory 212 Six and 3-speed with a later Hudson overdrive. I'm going to have the manifold split soon and add a set of dual exhausts with Smithy's. There is a '36 in Denver that has this set-up and sounds friggin' amazing!

    Does yours have a pullout pickup box in the trunk?
  3. No, that was only available in a coupe body. The trunk lid opened up, and the bed could be slid out to three different positions. Mine has the smooth, flat deck lid.

    My Dad had a 37 (Hudson not Terraplane) with an "electric hand" on the column. I'll have to dig up a picture. My younger brother is still pissed my dad sold it ( he came in the hospital in it)

    The Hudson National are coming up in Marlboro Mass July 22-27. You should try to connect with someone from the Hudson Club on www.classiccar.com in the Hudson forum. I will post a flyer for the National as soon as I can find one
    Cheers

    I tried to start a Hudson "Social Group" here in the groups section, but I was the only member for about a week...then I deleted the group. I can start another group if y'all are interested. I was going to put up some pics of custom Hudsons...I have hundreds.

    thekid49 - NICE. Where did you find an adapter to mount your 308 to a Muncie 4-speed? I've got a 308 I plan on running in my coupe, but the cork clutch disk just doesn't float my boat.

    HudsonCustom - When I saw all these Hudson sisters grouped together, I thought I'd like to add you guys to my friends list - but a group might work even better ... as long as the long lost bastard Essex were included! ;)
