nice kinda got a soft spot for 50 hudsons ..
The skirts had to be made. And are welded and molded in. It has a Merc grill.
Great start!! Cant wait to see more updates!
Looking good. I love me some chopped hudson!
Its now blown apart. Hood.Doors and trunk. Getting ready to jamb,and paint the dash in Candy.
59 Impala Dash in base coat.
That's crazy nice! The Brougham roofline looks so much nicer in a chop than a coupe does. Very cool.
I want to see that Impala dash in this. I can envision the dash itself, but not in the car. Can't wait to see that!
Not planning to change rear tires any time soon, right??? LOL!
Did you do all this in just the last ten days??? If so, that is VERY impressive!
Rear Tires. I dont see any rear tires.
This car has been in the makings over the last 10-12 years. Its was not done over night.
It is now starting to actually move forward.
Nice looking car! Hudsons had a nice roof line from the factory but that is sick!!
I saw the first pic and your last pic and thought "Damn! That's FAST work there!"
Nice build, in any case.
Dash already in Candy.
Still Jambing. Gonna get all that done this week.Hang and adjust all the gaps . Then it goes to the paint booth for final prep and body color.

Going to the Booth tomorrow for final prep. Gonna get shot tomorrow or Friday. Then it's going to sit till Monday for cut and polish.
Man that color is beautiful! and I ama satin finish kinda guy.......
Bad ass man, a chopped Hudson looks better than any Merc in my opinion, how are you going to trim it out? I have a bunch of extra SS from my 53 if you are interested.
In Black Base.
Now in Color.
Going to grab it Friday. I will grab pics out in the Sun. Outside the paint booth. Before I load it.
Hudsons, wood framed Chevys, and oddball GM big blocks. You are a glutton for punishment arent you?
Badass and keep up the progress. You keeping the late model buckets in it? Show some more of that inside.
Drew, I am as bad as you and Marcus with those Edsel's.
We dare to be different.
The interior is gutted. Don't know the route that I am headed yet. Its still in Fresno and I am in Fremont. So no other pics till I go grab it.
