Alright another Hudson! Welcome to the HAMB and the Hudson world. I love the green. That was the original color of my current '51 Super 6. My first Hudson, a '51 Pacemaker, had set for 30+ years. I soaked it in mystery oil, cleaned carb, replaced ignition parts and it fired and ran great for 10 years and is still running great for the guy I sold it to. Your waterpump is toast, it will leak guaranteed. Rebuilt ones are about $100(exchange) through Dale Cooper. Make sure you repair any frame rot. These are uni-body(Hudson calls it mono-built) cars so it is imperative that the frame stubs at each end be in good shape. Here's some info that I think will be useful to you: Dale Cooper @ hudsonmotorcarco.com for many parts you will need Optima makes a great 6V battery with 1000 cranking amps, you can use a 6V tractor battery from any farm and fleet store also. NAPA carries all your brake parts 21st Century Hudson is a good parts source Ken Cates Hudson restoration website is a very valuable resource for parts interchange info Rock Auto parts carries some parts also but not alot Feel free to pm me if you have questions. You will love this car!
