    nice can't wait to see it finished
     
  3. From another Hudson owner-love it! Can't wait to see this one come together. But, just my 2 cents-don't use a Ford grille. Then it'll just be mistaken as another Ford. You'll get a lot more attention if you wait look and find a Hudson grille. Theyre out there.

    Nice build and +1 on using a Hudson grill, it will help to set it apart. Here's a pic of my 34 for reference. One difference though is that it will hang down a lot lower than the grill you have, not sure if that's a plus or minus. I would also check out some early Plymouth grills, might be easier to locate and somewhat similar.

    Hudson is looking good. I remember your previous post / thread on the rearend width. It looks like you are going with the 9 inch ford rearend and keeping the pinion yoke offset in relation to center of the frame centerline. Is that correct ?

    Keep up the great work !

    Really nice build! Keep the pics coming.
     
  18. I've got a body just like that, always wondered if anybody else would build a rod out of one. I like the body style, I'll be watching you.:rolleyes:
     
  19. nice looking car! I'm working on a 30 Hudson sedan. What width axle are you using? I have a 60" hub to hub and it seems to a bit narrow. Your looks to have enough room that the tire won't rub the body.

    Hey is that Jim Federspiel's old Hudson body? I almost bought that a while back. Nice solid start.
     
  22. I like the "Not A Ford" on the doors!

    Very nice build pics, and of a Hudson, yet! Cool! Look at the grille on my '37 - might be odd on your car, maybe not...just an idea for ya!

    frame is 2 X 3, Rear kick up is 15 inches, front is 3 inches with a 28 ford front axle. Rear axle is a 9 inch ford, 67 inches wide backing plate to backing plate.
    I will still need 1 wheel spacers on the rear to make room for the wide whites.
    I will keep the updates coming as I make progress.
    thanks for all the interest.

    I like seeing different makes and models. Many of them have such unique styling queues that set them apart.

    Thanks for sharing. I plan to subscribe.
