1955 Hudson Hollywood Wasp 2DR
#1106 of approx 1600 produced
56. 00 original miles
Jet 202 motor with single carb
Hydramatic Automatic transmission
Power Windows
Power Brakes
Continental Kit
Newer seat upholstery in very good condition. New carpet.
Was last registered in 1977 in Iowa. to my knowledge. had not been driven or even run since 1977.

Here is what I did to it since I purchased it about a year ago:

Complete brake system rebuild: All new cylinders. shoes. brake lines. Bendix Treadle vac system professionally rebuilt.
Complete engine tune up: wires. rotor. cap. plugs. Carb rebuilt.
Complete fuel system rebuild: Tank boiled and sealed. new sender. all new fuel lines. electric fuel pump installed.
Complete cleaning.
Steering wheel repaired

Things that still need to be done:
Transmission: operational. but 2nd gear is slipping a little. Vibration over 40mph. I was told that since the car sat for 40+ years. that its likely that sludge is packed into one side of the torque converter. so its off balance.
PS Rear quarter window: Electric motor works (as do 3 other windows). wiring from motor to switch needs to be repaired. Both rear quarter windows and mechanisms have been cleaned and tested. need to be re-installed.
Driver side side window is cracked. needs to be replaced.

Engine: The engine runs flawlessly. and is virtually smoke free. I have driven the car around town a little. and its amazing how well the 202 runs after sitting for 40 years.

This car is a nice driver quality. A previous owner did a repaint on it. which is about all I know.

This 55 Hollywood is available for the buy it now price of only $6000.

Thanks for looking. Hoping it will go to a happy new "Hudson" home.
