Description:

1957 Hudson Hornet --

This is the end of an era. The 1957 Hudson Hornet was the final year for the brand, and so to have one so well preserved – right down to its correct V8 – makes for an exceptional tribute to this icon. Even in the final year of Hudson, buying a Hornet was a unique and premium experience. And that paintwork really proves it. The glowing Avocado green is expertly interwoven in-between the Mojave Yellow roof and lower section. Not... only are these the factory-correct colors, but also we believe this to be all original. So the hint of luster and plenty of real patina will be a true hit at the car shows. More than just interesting paint, this classic is for a true lover of details. The grille has a "V" that matches the dipping points in the surround; there are dual jet fins above each headlight; and the trim runs the complete profile. Plus, the way the low style line and high tailfin merge onto a two-piece taillight trim is absolutely artful. You wouldn't be able to see all of this if the whole car was not such a well preserved and complete package. Inside is more great originality. Yes, it shows plenty of signs of patina, but that's the worn-in (not worn-out) feeling that we love for survivor cars. Just like the exterior, Hudson really brought together a well-coordinated package with a nice two-tone arrangement. We especially like the dipping V seen on the grille returning on the cloth inserts for both rows of seats. You'll love how the bright wraparound dash is complete with great items still on display like the AM radio and Hudson's unique speedometer. It was a true luxury experience for '57, that's why this cost 25% more than a Chevy's premium Bel Air and also why there were only 1,256 Hornet Super sedans produced in this final year. Under the hood is the correct 327 cubic-inch V8, and it's believed to be original. So yes, you get a true survivor with its factory motor. More than just history, it's great to have a '57 that has such a large displacement and a four-barrel carburetor on top. In fact, today this Hudson remains a fine cruiser thanks to the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, you're looking at a survivor-grade example of a rare final-year Hudson. So at a value price like this, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal.
