RELISTING DUE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYER BACKING OUT!


Up for sale is our 1952 Hudson Hornet Twin-H Sedan. It's a great running car and has been maintained well over the years by owners in the national HET club. We bought this car from Larry Cramer in New York about 3 years ago and have had a ton of fun with it since then. We had the interior restored to original specs costing more than $5,500. From the previous owner I have a very detailed history as follows:

Car was originally purchased for the Hudson dealers wife in East Wooster, Y. From there the car was sold to an avid Hudson collector named Jim Maney who owned the car for many years. It was then acquired by Eric Deumler who was the body man at the Haberick Hudson dealer in Amsterdam, Y. Erick owned this car for several years until finally selling it to Larry Cramer in 2003. This was the last Hudson for Eric to sell in his collection. Under Larry’s ownership the engine was in need of some top end repair. In 2004-2005, he engine was removed to complete the repairs and Hudson Commodore 8 was installed so he could still cruise around. During this time the car was dubbed the “Hornadore”. Once the original 308 was repaired, he car was then off to be featured at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich, ew York for the Nifty Fifty’s exibit. Please see pictures in the ad.

Overall, his car is a blast to drive around and everywhere you go it gets attention. Wherever you stop folks want to take pictures, ave a conversation or just walk around the car to take it in. I took this car to a local drive in car show shortly after we completed the interior and it was quite the entertainer working the crowd for hours. We won the pre-55 class and won the People’s Choice Award compared to the other Ford’s and Chevy’s at the show.
