                 1949 HUDSON SUPER SIX SEDAN

 

HISTORY

 

                         The Hudson Motor Car Company was known for producing durable. well engineered but conservatively styled automobiles. That reputation was to be forever changed on December 7th. 1947 when Hudson introduced their new 1948 models in nationwide showings. Banners proclaimed “This Time It's Hudson”. The cars won instant acclaim from the public. Production had actually begun on October 12th. The tremendous factory conversion effort took only 23 days. Hudson spent $16. 00. 00 for development and new production equipment. The new car was revolutionary in that virtually no parts interchanged with the 1947 models. except the eight cylinder engine. which was essentially the same. The car had the lowest center of gravity and the lowest roofline of any American car without sacrificing headroom. due to the floorpans being attached to the bottom of the frame members instead of the top as all previous American cars had been. While the 1941 Nash 600 had been the first production unibody car. the new Hudson was significantly more rugged in construction and offered a sleek new design that was way ahead of the competition. The new body design was termed “Monobilt” because the body structure was of welded all steel construction. The cars were available in Super and Commodore trim levels with either a Six or Eight cylinder engine.

 

                         The 1949 Super Six Sedan featured in this auction spent its life as a car near Princeton in Southern Indiana. It sat in a barn there from 1973 until 2013. The options include two Tone paint. Radio and Heater. Whitewall tires and aftermarket Directional signals. It has standard shift without Overdrive and a 4 1/9 rear axle. The current mileage is 85. 60. I believe this to be the original mileage.    

 

 

              CONDITION

 

This car is a nicely reconditioned car that will drive to any destination. You could start driving this car every day. It runs and drives well and has a cruising speed of 55-60 MPH. It was recently repainted the original color of Jersey Blue. now two toned with Brigantine blue on the lower panels. It has a fresh mirror finish over driver grade bodywork. The car is very strong structurally. with very little rust. There is a patch in the front of both rocker panels. The exterior chrome is mostly decent original with a NOS hood ornament. The front stainless trim is freshly polished. The bumpers are a bit damaged as are some of the lower moldings. (see photos) The car was resurrected from the Barn last year and the stuck original engine replaced with a strong running 232 engine from a 1951 Hudson. It has been treated to a new clutch from Wildrick Restoration. The fuel tank was cleaned and coated. a new water pump. fuel pump and a complete tune up were done. A total brake job was done to include a repack of the bearings and seals replaced as needed. The center steering pivot was rebuilt. New front Shocks and the front end checked. There is also a new aluminized exhaust system. The original dash Woodgrained panels were retained. but the balance of the grained window sashes were painted and the entire interior reupholstered in period materials.   All of the lights. Gauges and horns work. The Clock and Radio are inop. The coolant hoses to the heater were not reconnected. I think these are the only defects. There is a Nice Matched set of Diamondback Classic Radial Wide Whitewall Collector car tires on powder coated wheels including a matching spare. This car is presentable and runs strong! It is currently Licensed. Insured and on the road. I have driven this car as an everyday car the last couple of weeks and it does great! It Rides. Drives. Handles and Stops very well! This car is offered at much less than restoration costs!
