This is a wonderful, 949 Hudson Super 6 four door sedan. Hudson became known for their innovative sleek fastback design built using their new “Monobilt” frame; which eliminated any need for rear wheel arches and provided a flat floor for passengers. The new frame allowed the designers to achieve their trademark sleek fastback design without compromising headroom, ith the additional benefit of being a safer compartment for passengers.
This beautiful two-tone blue Hudson Super 6 is in great working condition. The previous owner stated the rocker panels had been repaired and repainted, owever the body appears to be original. Two-tone blue paint is striking on the long sleek bodywork. Overall the body on this classic Hudson is very solid and shows extremely well, owever upon close inspection the paint is the average driver quality.
The interior is a fantastic blend of patina and minor upgrades, he dash board and interior accessories appear to be original and have a remarkable patina. Still in operating condition the original oversize gauges add the authenticity to this Hudson. The previous owner had the original tube radio refurbished with modern components and now has the ability to be compatible with Bluetooth audio. Finally both bench seats have been recovered in a period correct material and look great. We have receipts in hand totaling over $6000 for work completed within the last year. This included, ut was not limited to: fuel pump, uel filter, ank removed and sealed, ew window switches, complete wiring harness (new in box), new Coker wide white wall tires, efurbished radio, ater pump, ulleys, nd much more!
The previous owner in California stated that under their ownership the cooling system was improved to coop with the high temperatures of Napa Valley; which included a new water pump and coolant hoses. Paperwork indicates that the fuel tank and system were repaired and improved; along with all four drum brakes too. This ’49 Hudson Super 6 is an excellent example of a driver-quality restoration; capable of daily use with no worries.
