History Help Me ID This Car

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by El Hueso, Mar 30, 2020.

  1. Can you guys help me identify this car? It was found on a friend of my neighbors property & it might be up for grabs. Any help is appreciated.

  4. Agreed. The dash has me thrown for a loop. I thought it was Ford too until I saw the dash.

  7. You got it. It looks to be a 1938 Hudson Terraplane. Thanks @302GMC! The power of the HAMB.

    The front fenders on those two cars don't seem to match.

    Goofy looking rear fender is a dead on match. Odd wheel cutout, but guess they wanted to look different. Bob

    Hudson threw a whole bucket of ugly on that design!

    I would applaud anyone who was brave enough to take on that car as a build, it might make an interesting drag car or stock car or something, but it's certainly not all junk, if "up for grabs" means it's going to be free for the taking, I'd dig it out, just to see how good it is, and if nothing else, that cool split rear window roof section would be a great piece to hang onto for something custom, and the dash design would lend itself nicely to being cut down for an earlier car, would be easy to blank out the speedo hole and have room for new gauge cutouts, with a nice simple raised center section design.

    I looked at a 35 Ford in that condition, maybe worse. Decided there wasnt a single piece worth having

    As they say; it should buff up OK.

    Willys Americar sedan
  19. That's what I wish it was and if if that was the case I would've already dug it up. But I don't believe the Willys sedans ever had a split rear window as the coupes did. The oddball dash, belt line body line, and those funky rear fenders definitely look to be Hudson.
  20. It looks like the 1938 Willys doesn't have a split windshield like this does.
  21. ITS NOT A WILLYS!!! g-willys
  22. It's a 1941 Willys:

  28. Not a '41 Willys either. Don't get peoples hopes up!!! LOL. There were Jeeps being produced in late '41...but the only thing they shared with cars was the same 4-banger!
