    I know that everything is worth what someone is willing to pay, but a little advise would be appreciated. I'm headed up to the hills in the morning to look at a place with about 40 cars, and i recieved a couple pics today. One is a hudson pickup (no idea what year) and the other is a hacked up sedan with a jag rear and a big block with a six-jugger. If anyone has any idea what a realistic offer would be, I would appreciate the input. Thanks

    I love Hudson Trucks. I'd own one 'cept one for sale and me with money have never co-existed.

    That sedan is a '30 / '31 that was modified by someone who had a serious pudgy for the 60's rod "li'l coffin" built by a guy named Stuckie (sp). It would have a limited market but is way cool none the less. And yes that big block intake with webers is a truely neat piece. Value? That car should be worth 2k by itself. The Hudson p/u is a desirable oddball. It'd have to be worth the same.

    I agree with the masses that $2K would be a fair price to offer for the sedan. The roofline is done pretty well, I wonder if that was ever a finished car..

    The Hudson is probably also worth $2K if it's as decent as it looks, but I'd start lower there. Maybe ask if he'd sell the pair as a package, try $2500 or $3K for the pair and sell one off to get the other one cheap.

    Or, try to get the guy to put a number on them. He may start lower than you think. If he starts high, tell him that they really are neat cars and you'd like to fix them up but you could only afford X$. Never tell him the cars aren't worth near what he's asking, just tell him that you can only afford them if they're whatever price. Telling a guy with a yard full of cars that they ain't worth what he's asking is a great way to get chased off and never allowed to return. Claiming poverty works much better, and is often true.

    that intake and carbs could easliy get $800.00. prolly more. the value of the big block below it is in direct proportion to the amount of HP it came with factory...

    Hudson would be 2 grand or less depending on how much rust it has...

    the A does not look too promising in the pics... hard to tell.

    Looks like a 1940-1941 Hudson Pickup. Appears to be the 1/2 ton model (shorter bed).

    As most know, hard to tell about rust without a personal visit. For a truck sitting like that, watch for rust in the front part of the bed, and the frame just below that area. From the photo, it appears that the bottom of the doors and surrounding areas have some issues as well. Almost guaranteed that there will be rust issues with the floor, etc...

    Depending on the condition, the truck is probably worth $2k - $4k.
    The cheaper you can get it, the better.
    The amount paid will be almost insignificant - compared to what it will cost to restore it. With the exception of the bed, parts are obtainable as Hudson car parts are interchangeable and will work with the truck.
    A #1 truck would be worth around $25-30k.

    Me? I've already got a driver & two project trucks...
