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 $16,000,000 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.

In the Fall of 1949 Hudson introduced a New Lower Priced line of cars, The New 1950 Pacemaker. It was offered in the Standard or Deluxe series. The body styles included a 2 door sedan or Brougham, a four door sedan, a business coupe, club coupe and convertible brougham.

The 1950 Pacemaker Deluxe Brougham featured in this auction lived its life as a car in Charleston, Illinois. It really was a little old lady schoolteachers car. It is an always garaged car. It was restored in the early 1970’s and sold to a longtime Hudson Club member in Knightstown, Indiana at the 1975 Hudson Club National Meet in Youngstown, Ohio. I bought it from his estate in 2004 and sold it to a good friend some months later. I recently took it in on trade on another collector car. The current mileage is 85,983. The mileage is listed as ACTUAL on the Indiana title. It has been driven about 6,000 miles in the last 11 years. It is equipped with a Radio, Heater, aftermarket Directional signals, ventshades, Oil bath air cleaner, Seat Covers, Foglights, Reproduction Goodyear Super Cushion whitewall tires including the spare and beauty rings. It really is pretty deluxe! It has standard shift without Overdrive and a 4 1/9 rear axle.

The engine is smooth and quiet, the clutch is smooth and the gearboxes are silent. All of the lights and Gauges work. When I got the car in 2004, I did a complete brake, wheel seal and bearing job and a conversion to DOT5 Silicone brake fluid. The brakes still work perfectly including the parking brake! I also installed a fresh fuel tank and cleaned the oilpan. At that time I polished and installed a correct NOS steering wheel that is still perfect! The Radio plays, the heater produces nice heat and the Vacuum wipers work. The horns Honk! This car has no rust.The paint is over 40 years old and there are no bubbles. The old lacquer paint is still very shiny. There are a few touchups. The car presents beautifully. All of the chrome, emblems and glass are very nice to excellent and much of it is original! The accessory seat covers appear to have been on since new. You could remove them and find out if its Christmas morning or not. The balance of the original interior is nice, although there are a few stains on the headliner. The original rubber floormats are perfect! The defects on this car are few. There is a single rockchip in the drivers side windshield. The windup clock is inop. The temperature gauge indicates higher than the actual temp, which is typical of the 48-50 Hudsons. This is a smooth, whisper Quiet, matching number, Good Running 232. It is currently Licensed, Insured and on the road.
