This Hudson is unlike any Hot Rod you'll ever see. The attention to detail and the overall craftsmanship are hands down difficult to comprehend. Typically one would think that something of this magnitude would require a team of engineers and an endless amount of time and $$$. Fortunately, all it took was a single human being with a vast imagination, a strong understanding of engineering, a truck load of fortitude, and like magic, you have one of the most significant pieces of mobile artwork the World has ever seen.
Within the last several months the Hudson has won a few notable awards. It took "Best Engineered" at World of Wheels 2016. Even more prestigious, it won Art of the Concourse here in Kansas City. We're talking about a car that was surrounded by Duesenbergs & came out on top! I have always had a great appreciation for all Hot Rods, Street Rods, and Muscle Cars. They have always been a huge part of my life but this one, this one has taken my appreciation to a new level. One in which is hard to explain. It is not due to its overall appearance nor sheer magnitude, it is a bit deeper then that. It is the feeling that this Hudson puts right in the center of your chest. Imagine standing five feet from railroad tracks and a speeding Locomotive flies past you at full speed. The feel of the engines, the sounds and vibration from steel beating against steel, just the sheer pressure that comes from such a monstrous piece of machinery. That is the best way I can describe standing next to this Hudson when it fires up and just sits idle. The very first thing that came to mind when I was first able to witness it start up was the word "death". It is just absolutely phenomenal and exceptionally difficult to put in to words. I can say with certainty that this Hudson would definitely give the four horsemen of the apocalypse a run for their money.
The mechanical aspect of this Hudson is a modern work of art. The entire drive train & frame are surreal. Here is a break down of what it consists of:
- Dual (2) 468 Chevy Big Blocks With Holley Hydraulic Cam Shafts
- 454 Steel Heads
- Timing Chains
- Dual (2) 600 CFS Carburetors
- Dual (2) 671 GMC Blowers
- Dual (2) 400 Turbo Transmission With Shift Kits
- Dual (2) Meziere Electric Water Pumps + 2 Manual Water Pumps
- Four MSD Distributors + Wires
- Dual (2) Master Cylinders
- Dual (2) 9" Ford Rear Ends With Detroit Lockers
- Sweet Power Steering Unit
- T-Bird Rack
Both motors have been dialed in and the bugs are worked out. Both 468's run on regular pump gas. Neither of which leak nor burn an excess amount of fluid.
The body of the Hudson was completely tore down and went through an extensive amount of fabrication. The roof was chopped 3" while it was stretched 13" wide. The rear wheel housing was completely fabricated. It measures out at seven feet and four inches. The front fenders are from a 1927 Model T. The front tilting hood was completely fabricated and it compliments the body of the Hudson very nicely. As you can see, the doors & body panels line up exceptionally well. The paint work is stunningly beautiful. There are no runs, no orange peel, no cracks, just beautiful mirror finish paint work. As you will see, she has 59 Cadillac tail lights which really compliment the dramatic flares of the rear wheel housing. All of the chrome, stainless, and glass are in excellent condition. The rear wheels are Centerline Bottlecaps which are 15x15 (33/22/15) and the front wheels are a pair of Rocker Gasser rims which measure at 4 1/2 x 15. The body of the Hudson has also been fitted with custom LED lighting which at night makes the Hudson look exceptionally tough. The lighting runs under the Hudson and highlights the interior of the grill as well as both motors.
The interior of this Hudson consists of real leather and carbon fiber vinyl. It has an exceptional amount of room and is extremely comfortable. The 59 Impala instrument panels are in excellent condition with no pitting nor any issues. Everything works exceptionally well. The shifter is a B&M. The Hudson has power windows as well as a backup camera which is mounted to a 7" LCD under the dash.
Since the Hudson has been completed, it has had less than a couple hundred miles put on it. It is fresh and ready to enjoy. If you're into owning unique & collectible pieces, you can't go wrong with this Hudson as you'll be the only human being on the planet to own one. Be warned, if you don't like attention then I would not advise bidding nor attempting to purchase this Hudson. Hordes of people flock to this thing no matter where it is at. So if you're not big on attention and if you're looking for something that gets good gas mileage, I'd recommend running the other direction. However, if you love the feel and power of a Hot Rod on Hulk like steroids, then the Hudson Hornet is for you. If there was ever to be a King of the Hot Rods, this would be it.
We do have a clear title for this Hudson. I do reserve the right to end the auction early should it sell prior to the auction ending. So if you have any questions or concerns, I'd recommend calling first. Please feel free to share this listing with all of your friends on Facebook, Twitter, etc. It will definitely bring a smile to their face! Good luck and happy bidding!
WARNING! PLEASE READ:
If you purchase this car please understand that any car show you take it to, expect the majority of the people in attendance to completely surround your car (almost instantly). This is no joke. Just the sound alone is enough to make people snap their necks and start corralling. Great for publicity, bad for the vocal cords.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TAKING A VIRTUAL DRIVE:
You won't need that seat belt and you won't need a license to enjoy this. If you're using a Desktop or Laptop, all you have to do is click your mouse on the center of the screen and move around. If you're using a phone or a tablet, simply open the video to full screen and then enjoy! Spin around in your seat, it's almost like you're actually in the car! Enjoy!
This is something new that I am trying and I would love to have your opinion on it. It is footage which I shot on a 360 degree panoramic camera. In my opinion, it is the closest thing one can experience (short of seeing the car in person) to being behind the wheel. It is a virtual experience which I intend to improve upon. However, in order to do that, I need your help! Come join me on Youtube or please feel free to add me under your favorite sellers here on eBay. I'd appreciate any suggestions, feedback, even criticisms, anything I can do to make this experience more enjoyable for you. Want to take a virtual seat behind the wheel of your dream car?
