For Sale: 1951 Hudson Hornet in Southampton, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

If your looking for a super fun car to take a bunch of friends to the local ice cream shop in, this is the car for you.  It is a classic Hudson Hornet, all original and solid. 

This Hudson Hornet is a four-door sedan and is powered by Hudson's high-compression straight-six "H-145" engine. This car is equipped with the optional "twin-H" or twin one barrel carburetors. The newly introduced "Twin H-Power" was available in November 1951 as a Dealer installed option at the cost of $85.60. An electric clock was standard.  A L-head (flathead or side-valve) design, at 308 cu in (5.0 L) it was the largest [displacement] six-cylinder engine for mass-production cars the at the time. It had a two-barrel carburetor and produced 145 hp (108 kW) at 3800 rpm and 275 lb⋅ft (373 N⋅m) of torque.   This car is VIN# 50010.

The car received a full restoration about 17 years ago by the previous owner and my mechanics have maintained and serviced the car as part of my collection since then.   It is also equipped with a secondary 12-volt electrical system (primary power is a 6 volt system) that powers LED lights located beneath the car for cool effects during cruising.  It has its original radio but also has a more modern system that runs from the 12 volt setup in the glovebox, and subwoofer in the trunk.
