1949 Other Makes Super Six

Here is for sale my 1949 Hudson Super Six. I bought this car about 5 years ago to drop it and make a Rat out of it but the body was in such good shape that I ended up restoring it. It's taken too long and two small kids in the process and now there is no time to finish it or enjoy it. I have done a ton of work to it, oo much to remember but I will do my best and if there is any questions please just ask before the auction ends. Understand that I was NEVER shooting for a show car but a reliable driver that would be different at car shows, he car is exactly that, nd with the minor imperfections it has and what it needs to be completed, t is still a great deal for the price. I am selling it with a reserve well under what I have in it!!

  • Undercoated the sub-frame
  • Full body work completed about 4 years ago(only two door skins were damaged in the bottom and the metal was replaced)
  • Full body paint including the engine bay completed about 3years ago, ot show quality but very nice(took old engine out and painted the engine bay)
  • Removed all the trim from the lower body and covered holes to give thecar a cleaner look
  • Painted dash all interior trim and steel wheels to match car
  • Reupholstered entire car to include: carpet, eats, eadliner, ind lace, oor panels sun visors, rm rests, tc... (needs cleaning now)
  • Installed all new glass, xcept the rear back windshield (both front windshield pieces and all 8 side glass pieces)
  • Installed all new rubber and felts all around the new glass (which were painful to find, gain except the back glass)
  • Replace all bad hardware to get all glass to work properly (new door latches, ome new handles, ew interior handles and cranks)
  • All new door hinge bolts
  • Repaired steering wheel, eplace most dash components and most minor hardware under dash
  • All new 12V electric (wiring, ulbs, tc..) from the headlights to the tail lights
  • Left wiring ready for A/C and radio, nd added turn signal kit with led signals on headlights
  • Added a SBC V8-305 from the early 90's that runs awesome with a 400th tranny that shifts smoothly
  • Custom made a new drive shaft and cross member and rebuilt the gear box, rakes and radiator.
  • Install new Edelbrock intake and Holley carburetor, lectric fuel pump, ew MSD electronic distributor, &M air filter, ires, lugs, nd much more!!
  • Added Power brakes from a 1990's Camaro and a neutral safety switch so that it won't start unless in Park
  • Has new Chrome valve covers and aluminum oil pan, oth with new performance gaskets
  • Chrome bumpers were re-plated
  • Lowered the car about 1" in the back and 2" in the front (looks better and rides nice)
  • Included is the tool to remove the drums, rm rests, ome light, un visors, sh traysand any other parts I may find for it.

There is a lot more I have added to the car in this long process that I'm sure I'm forgetting, o please ask. Bottom line, he car is 95% complete and all the hard work is done. It runs great and stops on a dime and it will cruise at 70 mph all day long.I will try to upload a video of it running in thenext day or so and pictures of the parts that come with it. Here is a list of what it needs to be 100% complete (or basically what I was going to finish on it):

  • Install arm rests, un visors, ome light, couple of ash trays, orn button, ash Hudson emblems and radio cover plate or original radio faceplate (ALL these items will come with the car)
  • Install new wiper kit (I took the old vacuum system out to put electric wipers)
  • Install new A/C system if desired, ompressor and electric are there ready to be used (I live in Florida so A/C is a must!!)
  • I would also install a radiator reservoir kit and replace the oil plug's gasket that leaks from over tightening by the last guy that changed the oil.
  • Needs a good cleaning in the interior and mostly to be driven!!!
