Hudson Hornet Convertible
Hudsons have been credited with pioneering numerous important advances in automotive design, including the "step down" body style introduced in 1948 – now an industry standard. Claiming 10 of 11 stock car Grand Nationals in 1952 alone, “The Fabulous Hudson Hornet” was a powerful player in American racing through the mid-1950s, strongly contributing to its tremendous commercial success.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.
180 hp, 308 cu. in. L-head inline six-cylinder engine with Twin H-Power dual carburetors and dual manifold induction system, dual Range Hydramatic automatic transmission, independent front suspension with rear leaf springs, four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 124"
