1953 Hudson Hornet

Rare 1st Generation Model Inline 308ci 6 Cylinder Engine Twin H Power Carburetors Hydramatic automatic Transmission

The Hudson Hornet is an automobile that was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit Michigan between 1951 and 1954. The Hornet was also built by American Motors Corporation (AMC) in Kenosha Wisconsin and marketed under the Hudson brand between 1955 and 1957.

MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this unique and rarely seen 1953 2 door Twin H Hudson Hornet, ruly classic American collector’s find! First-generation Hudson Hornets featured a functional “step-down” design with dropped floor pan and chassis creating a lower center of gravity than contemporary vehicles that aided the car’s handling capabilities which was a bonus for racing. The Hornet’s lower and sleeker look was accentuated by streamlined styling, ometimes called “ponton” styling. The car’s unique, ow slung appearance and silky handling earned Hudson an image that – for many buyers – eclipsed luxury marques like Cadillac.

The 1953 model year brought minor changes to the Hudson Hornet. The front end was modified with a new grille and a non-functional air scoop hood ornament. Four different body designs were produced: a two-door club coupe, ollywood hardtop, onvertible Brougham, nd a four-door sedan. Hudson Hornet 1953 model year production totaled 27,208 units of which around 910 were the Hollywood hardtops. As a point of interest, n upgraded 8-tube radio was a option.

Finished in classic and desirable black exterior over a very original blue/gray cloth interior, the paint finish and body show extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection.

Inside, he seat upholstery looks great in a crushed velour cloth with no major signs of wear visible. The door panels are finished to match the seats and dashboard are matched to mirror the exterior of the car and all look fantastic. Paint and body are displayed well with minimal paint issues and no visible evidence of repair or damage that we could find.

This nicely represented Hudson is equipped with the optional “twin-H” or twin one barrel carburetor setup, L-head (flathead or sidevalve) design. At 308 cu in (5.0 L) it was the largest displacement six-cylinder engine in the world at the time. With its unique carb configuration, he engine produces 145 hp which is linked to a Hydramatic automatic transmission, he car also features wide whitewall tires on OEM steel wheels with Hudson hub caps, riginal AM radio, nd set of spare keys (rare!). Daily use or weekend get-a-ways, his iconic 50’s sled is ready when you are!

With the low production numbers these Hornets are becoming increasingly hard to find in such solid well kept condition. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
