    I'm a big fan of the "Step-Down" Hudson.
    Also dig the grills on those late 30s models.
    Dont see many around. Especially customs.
    Anyone?
    Hudsons?
    Anyone?

    Hi, new guy here, first post, been lurking for a while collecting ideas. This is my long term project, it's a 1937 Hudson. I have a 67 mopar 318 from the only car my dad ever purchased new, and a 64 cast iron 4 speed to go in it. I want it to look like an old gasser, but lower.

  6. I have a '49 coupe that would be ideal for a pro-street type build. That, a '48 sedan and a '42 coupe and I have like $1200 invested in the three.

    Done cars are around, you just have to know where to look.
     
  7. So I looked past the wheels and what do I see? a Healy. both are probably traditional in South Africa haha! Jim

    Hudson Joe is a great friend of ours (Shifters) and has a 49 full kustom. The engine is a twin carbed bored, stroked, and balanced hudson that screams.
    He worked for well known Hudson restorer Bill Albright for years, and knows these things inside and out.
    Joe, I know you're lurking around here. Jump aboard and post some pictures of your car & the engine !
    later

    Hey Harms Way did you sell that car to a guy named Jack Miller in Yipsi?
    He used to run that Hudson dealership downtown.
    I bought my 52 Hornet from him.

    Here's mine... 1941 Hudson. It has a 351W w/c4. It will be coming apart later today... rear main was leaking... so its an excess to rebuilding a 361 w/ 727 pushbutton... putting a STR-15 on top... before the long the steering will be modified and the car dropped another 2 inches.

    Shot these two Hudsons in Holland MI back in 1992 at the KKOA spectacular.
    As I recall the black one later had some neat graphics and was featured in several mags.

    I am lovin' this thread. The dirt track car is fantastic!

    I initially was only interested in the Hudson engine, then discovered they came in some nice packages.

    The engine currently tucked inside my '49 Super Six Coupe. Its hooked to a standard 3 speed and a 3.07 ratio Hydramatic rearend, I have yet to find a hill I can't climb in high gear - gaining speed.

    The '49. I struggle with whether to paint it or not. I keep wishing the paint could talk.
    [​IMG]

    Future plans are to put a McCulloch on the '49 and have the supercharger fully operational by next spring.
    [​IMG]


    Also, I have a stroker engine in the works - that I need to get finished, but haven't found the right car to inspire me.

    Daily Driver, the '53 Super Wasp Coupe. My youngest daughter loves to go "Wasperin" - so do I.

    Hudsonator, Nice stuff man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Joe, Give our readers some details about your engine !
     
  29. mark, you will notice the balance tube i mentioned, on joe's 49 with a twin h manifold. it crosses the heat riser. curiously, the 55/56 twin h doesnt have them. i bet its due to a lack of space in the nash body

    Hudsonator - there is no way I would paint that black coupe. I would drop in that killer supercharged drive train, drop it, and run it. Too cool.
