Cool and Elegant might be a coupe of terms to describe this beautiful 1934 Hudson Terraplane Victoria!
Certainly the color (or colors) are very striking, and grab everyones eyes whether traveling down the road, or relaxing at a car show But, take a step backs and look at the lines of this rare piece of rolling art.
The swooping lines of the side profile, with the chrome tail lights allow this Terraplane to flow even while standing still. The top was chopped 4”, and gives the Terraplane a low, lean look.
Now, take a look at the front grill. Similar to the 34 Ford, but perhaps a little bolder, and certainly harkening back to the classic Art Deco styling that was wildly popular then, and highly appreciated today. That hood ornament is very rare and adds an additional touch of class to this already visually upscale hotrod.
Notice the front grill design brought into the soft comfortable interior, embossed into the bucket seating and door panels. A very nice touch!
Not to be overlooked, the luggage compartment has been
finished to match the interior, and houses the battery, master cut-off switch, and the fuel filler...Perfect!
Fire up the 350 and you’ll fill the air with the sound of a supercharger sitting on top of a well built engine. GM’s heavy duty Turbo 400 transmission, and Fords 9” differential make certain the power is transferred to the ground with peace of mind assurance.
Independent front suspension, and rack and pinion steering make this Terraplane easy, and a pleasure to drive, and the 4 wheel disc brakes are a nice upgrade for any hotrod.
If you have a desire for a hotrod, with a touch of class, and elegance. Perhaps a classic car that’s a little more rare that it’s 1930’s counterparts, but still on the edge of tough and classy. Well, that’s a difficult combination to find.
Take a good look at this 1934 Hudson Terraplane Victoria. There aren’t may around, and to have one that ticks a lot of boxes like this one...This just might be the gem you’ve waited for!
