SELLER REMARKS

The Hudson Hornet is a legend. one ably helped by a certain animated movie. but before the Hornet. Hudson was building high-quality luxury cars like this 1949 Hudson Commodore. Originally powered by a smallish straight-8. this Commodore now sports genuine Hornet horsepower. giving you the best of both worlds: one of Hudson's most attractive cars powered by their most powerful engine.



Restored in the 1990s. this car still looks great in its handsome two-tone green paint. Subtle but sophisticated. it accentuates the long. low lines of the Commodore. Hudson's all-new 1948 models were the first to use "step down" styling. which really meant they were uni-body cars and therefore the floors didn't have to sit on top of a frame. and yes. they really are considerably lower than their competition. As a result. this cool sedan looks chopped and channeled like a custom Merc. but retains 100% original and unmodified sheetmetal. That means the doors fit well. everything seals up nicely. and it doesn't have any of those custom car hiccups that you often find. Better still. it remains instantly identifiable at a glance and anyone who knows what a Hudson is will fall in love. Anyone who doesn't know what a Hudson is will immediately want to know what it is. It's that kind of car. Nice chrome. bright stainless trim. and lots of ornamentation make this car look expensive and we can promise you'll have the only one at the next cruise-in.



Thanks to the innovative construction. there's a huge amount of space inside the Commodore's interior. making it a genuine 6-passenger automobile. Wearing proper period upholstery with button tufted seat covers. a big ivory-colored steering wheel. and a surprisingly modern dash. it feels contemporary and easy to handle from the driver's seat. The gauges are arrayed in the center of a woodgrained dash. with the speedometer on the driver's side and a clock for the passenger. and a combination of auxiliary gauges and warning lights in the middle. There's also an AM radio (not functional due to a 12-volt upgrade) and yes. that's an under-dash A/C unit that's fully operational and blows ice cold. Nice! There's a ton of space in back with lots of leg room. and even the trunk is massive enough for a full family to head out on a road trip. Fortunately. there's also a full-sized whitewall radial and jack assembly. just in case.



This Commodore originally carried a smallish 254 cubic inch straight-8. which was smooth. but during the restoration it was upgraded with a 308 cubic inch inline-6 from a later Hornet. and the difference is remarkable. The big six pumps out plenty of torque and never seems to run out of breath. which is probably why it was so formidable on the early NASCAR tracks. There are about 20. 00 miles on the drivetrain. and it's nicely detailed with correct gold engine enamel. downdraft carburetor with oil bath air cleaner. and a giant radiator up front. It fires easily and really does run hard. assisted by a 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. so 60-70 MPH cruising is effortless (owner reports it'll cruise at 80+ but we'll leave that for you). Hudson's combination of ride and handling was tough to beat and you'll note the heavy-duty subframes and floors are in excellent shape. It sits on factory wheels and hubcaps with modern 235/75/15 wide whitewall radials. so it has the right look with better handling.



Hailing from long-term ownership and with an awesome pedigree that means you can drive it anywhere. this Hudson is an unusual opportunity to own a special car. Call today!
