Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

This car was featured in a multiple page article in the April 2010 edition of Collectible Automobile  magazine and well known to likely be the best in existence.  This has been well restored while keeping as many original features as possible.

This motorcar has most all of the rarest options including the powerful 320 cu in Packard V-8, Ultramatic automatic transmission, Continental rear spare kit, radio, Weather Eye hearing and air conditioning, reclining seats/beds, power steering and power windows.

This was bought by my mentor Dick Benjamin in 1985 having accumulated about 70,000 miles.  The motorcar came from South Dakota and was in all original preserved condition.  After restoring the car he and his wife participated on numerous car tours throughout the country.  The “Hash” now has 91,750 miles.

One of about 1,700 made this was the top-of-the-line model for the new American Motors Corporation.  This is a rare opportunity to obtain an exceptionally limited production model that has a low survivor rate.  In addition, this is likely the nicest in existence and is now a California “blue plate” motorcar.  This would be an important addition to a collection of American motorcars at a fraction of the cost to restore one- if you could find an unrestored example.

We will be taking full detailed photos and video in the upcoming weeks as we fully service it in preparation for sale.  For further details please call Harry at 602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Hudson Hornet

Interesting Fact: The Hudson Hornet was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company from 1951 to 1954 and then by American Motors from 1955 to 1957.

Interesting Fact: The Hudson Hornet was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company from 1951 to 1954 and then by American Motors from 1955 to 1957. This change was due to the merging of companies, but this did not result in significant changes to the Hornet itself.   This vehicle was available as a two-door coupe or four-door sedan, along with a convertible option, and features a 5.0-liter straight-six engine. On the low end, a Hudson Hornet would cost a potential buyer $2,543 which is equivalent to $26,000 now. The specialized engine that is used in the Hornet gives the car 170 horsepower (starting with models from 1954 and on) and a top speed of 112 miles per hour was reported.   What this vehicle is most famous for, however, is most likely the fact that Hudson was the first automaker to become involved in stock car racing, and the Hornet was a serious contender in races that occurred in the early 1950s. This rich history, along with the powerful engine and design of the Hornet, make this vehicle a classic that many hope to purchase!
