Vehicle Description

Anybody remember the Disney movie 'Cars' or the movie Driving Miss Daisy? That's right, this is the one, the same model. Hudson is in the spotlight of several old movies because Hudson was simply put, ahead of their time! This car is a real beauty. Though not original, it has many of it's classic charm and easily turns heads. This car has had much work done and could probably use a little more if you're looking for more than daily driver quality. Here is what has been done thus far: Undercoated the sub-frame Full body work completed about 4 years ago (only two door skins were damaged in the bottom and the metal was replaced) Full body paint including the engine bay completed about 3years ago, not show quality but very nice (took old engine out and painted the engine bay) Removed all the trim from the lower body and covered holes to give the car a cleaner look Painted dash all interior trim and steel wheels to match car Reupholstered entire car to include: carpet, seats, headliner, wind lace, door panels sun visors, arm rests, etc... (needs cleaning now) Installed all new glass, except the rear back windshield (both front windshield pieces and all 8 side glass pieces) Installed all new rubber and felts all around the new glass (which were painful to find, again except the back glass) Replace all bad hardware to get all glass to work properly (new door latches, some new handles, new interior handles and cranks) All new door hinge bolts Repaired steering wheel, replace most dash components and most minor hardware under dash All new 12V electric (wiring, bulbs, etc..) from the headlights to the tail lights Left wiring ready for A/C and radio, and added turn signal kit with led signals on headlights Added a SBC V8-305 from the early 90's that runs awesome with a 400th tranny that shifts smoothly Custom made a new drive shaft and cross member and rebuilt the gear box, brakes and radiator. Install new Edelbrock intake and Holley carburetor, electric fuel pump, new MSD electronic distributor, K&M air filter, wires, plugs, and much more!! Added Power brakes from a 1990's Camaro and a neutral safety switch so that it won't start unless in Park Has new Chrome valve covers and aluminum oil pan, both with new performance gaskets Chrome bumpers were re-plated Lowered the car about 1" in the back and 2" in the front (looks better and rides nice) Included is the tool to remove the drums, arm rests, dome light, sun visors, ash trays and any other parts I may find for it. The car is 95% complete and all the hard work is done. It runs great and stops on a dime and it will cruise at 70 mph all day long. Here is a list of what it needs to be 100% complete: Install arm rests, sun visors, dome light, a couple of ash trays, horn button, dash Hudson emblems and radio cover plate or original radio faceplate (ALL these items will come with the car) Install new wiper kit (I took the old vacuum system out to put electric wipers) Install new A/C system if desired, compressor and electric are there ready to be used. I would also install a radiator reservoir kit and replace the oil plug's gasket that leaks from over tightening by the last guy that changed the oil. If you have any questions, please feel free to get with us and we would be happy to address any questions you might have.
