    Search & Restore's last episode was a 51 Hudson they chopped. Merry Chrismas to you and your new Hudson. :)

    Gorgeous! I love Hudsons. My kid wants me to get one so he has his own "Doc" (from the movie Cars) sitting out in the driveway. Hope to see what you end up doing with it!
     
  8. Beautiful!

    Always liked Hudsons, had a '53 Wasp once, engine was worn slap out when I got it and I only had it for awhile.
    Friend had a "hauler", '53 coupe (long deck), Caddy engine and Dual Range Hydramatic. That car was fast "on the road with a load"!

    Had a 49 Commodore with a 56 nailhead in it. Was a fast dependable car. Good luck with yours.

    awesome lettering. i wish i could do half as good. body looks pretty crusty, hope the unibody frame is in good shape. hate to see you put a ton of work in on it and have it fall in half! one of the parts hudsons i scrapped out was so rusty the torch wouldn't even stay cutting on that area. it just crumbled apart.
