My Barn Find

Well - it wasn't in a barn, but it was in a shop for a long time.

1950 Hudson Super 6

I went to barter on this car for sheet metal parts for my 49 Hudson project and it was in such nice shape for the price I decided to buy it and providing I can get it running I'll do a driver level restoration and get it roadworthy again.

The older couple I bought it from said it ran off the trailer 2 years ago with a gallon gas can, so we'll see what happens after I check it out - it also came with a TwinH manifold to boot!

This would allow me take the 49 project to the "next level" by chopping the top in parallel with this car over the winter then I can sell the 50 to finish the financing on the 49.

OK - I'll probably end up keeping both!

That's got the makings of a cool cruiser. I'd get the body in shape and repaint it, reupholster it and do an upgrade on the power plant. That dash is too sweet!

gorgeous find! Keep the engine in it, maybe find some vintage speed parts for it if you can. Wasn't Hudson really good in the early days of Nascar?

...it was before it became Nascrap. <off topic though

No Kidding! This was real NASCAR racing


The TwinH manifold shown in the trunk, is the dual carb setup for the 262 flathead six.

Nice find. I tried to buy a 2 door '54 Hornet a while back and the guy couldn't bring himself to part with it.

Keep it, put that twin carb set-up on it, a better cam and exhaust and make a vintage replica moonshine car. Heck around here, there's still money in 'shine!
Until a few years ago I had a '58 Ford plain-jane tudor sedan with the original 352 cube/300 HP police interceptor engine. It was originally a NC highway patrol car. After that it was actually used as a moonshine car back in the early to mid 60s. Since I was the third owner, including the state, I got her full history!

much less expensive than my idea, and I like the period-correct speed parts going into it.
