My nephews new Wasp. :)

What a nice car my nephew just picked up and for only $1500. I have to say it, this is why I love the odd balls, they are SOOOOO much more reasonable to buy than the popular cars.

You sure that isn't a typo? $1500? Was he packing a gun? That's a steal, what a sweet deal!

Ask him if he wants to make a $500 profit. It runs, right? I'd drive that puppy home.

It was in a barn looking pretty sad. It got a cosmetic restoration including an engine rebuild five years ago and my brother tells me it runs like a clock!

I'd upgrade it to a 27 hp Briggs and racing slicks. And clean the carpets!
Great find and well done!

It's basically got the same motor as my American but it's stroked for a big 10 more cubes at 206. It's a real tire smoker!

What year is it? Hudson produced them and American Motors produced them under the Hudson name.
Actually those Hudson 6's were raced for years.
Craigslist find?

It's funny, the pink says 53 and the vin matches but it looks like a 55? Anyway, yeah Hudson and Nash merged in 54 or so which I didn't know, I thought it was 58. This Hudson has an AMC on it's body tag.

I don't know how he ended up with it. All I know is his 50 Dodge is going down the road as it needs a LOT of work. He is just going to drive this as it.
