    Really nice ride! Color combo is great. I would also do as others suggested, Get it puuuuring, Wide Whites and spend good coin on the interior. Beautifull

    Should be a lot of fun for you and son,with a name like that you pretty much sealed his fate, when I was working on mine you realize how well these cars are made and how far ahead they were of the more popular makes of the day. Would love to see some pics of it.

    The only reason I took the spats and gas filler door off is that the race cars didn't run them or hub caps, and yes I know they didn't run visors,spot lights,fog lights either. I personally like your car with them on and wouldn't remove them, but your car and your choice of course. Would be good to see a shot under the hood.

    Ahh good call, I didn't connect the race car theme at first, I can be slow on the uptake sometimes:D


    The Visor is staying for sure I love it. I'll post some engine pics tonight or tomorrow.

    Engine pics as requested. They aren't the best I pulled my back and can hardly walk so I couldn't pull it out of the shop.

    There's a fella here on the HAMB who has a killer Hudson- I saw it at a car show not far from you in Sanford a couple of years back. Really nice guy too.
