1954 Hudson Hornet find

If you can get that car buy it now. I used to mechanic for a Stock Car racer (now NASCAR) from Texas. He raced nothing but the Hudson cars. Even when the GM, Ford and Chrysler V8's made their appearance that Hudson ate them in the curves and took home a trophy. Junior Johnson was ready to get into a Hudson when the company collapsed. I saw them as Highway Patrol pursuit cars in Montana, Colorado and northern New Mexico. The idea was to chase the violator until he went too fast to negotiate the curves and eventually rolled the car. Those Hudson's I saw just wouldn't usually roll over. They were very stable in the track banked curves.

Mr Slow, now you have 2 cool cars! Nuttin wrong with the Mopar.

The Hudson is sweet! IMO, I would clean it up, restore type of work, it's dang near complete as far as trim goes. What goes across the bottom of the hood, the name? I would keep it as original as possible.

My buddies Dad raced a Hudson in the early-mid 50's. Track champ two years, on the dirt. It makes a cool sound when you put your foot into it. Too Kool for skool!

Thanks dinger! Glad to hear some nice comments Across the hood my guess is that it should say "Hudson" But im not sure someone else might now? Yeah my plan right now is to keep it as it is on the outside and clean up a little bit and try to get some more shine on the chrome! And i will paint the wheels red and save the caps in a safely spot in the garage! Willl probarly put on the fenderskirts too! After that is done i will begin to fresh up the interior!
You dont have any old pictures from the time youre dad and his buddies raced that Hudson? Would be really funny to see!
Heres one more picture i found!
