Seems like everybody is building the new Moebius Hudson.  I wanted a shot at one but wanted to be somewhat different, so here's a CUSTOM Hudson.  It's painted in HOK teal kandy with some Pearl Ex spring green on top.  The body was primed in 2 different colors so I could get the "trick" paint effect.  The taillight is where the original bumper was; most of the lower panel chrome was removed; '50 Olds headlights (I cast them now); and a different type of hood hinge that doesn't work right - yet.  There's a small block Chevy under the hood.  The original engine is available for trade.  The exhaust system is aluminum rod while the chassis was painted with that Rustoleum texture paint (I love that stuff).

Would have been super cool with a reverse rake and some Dayton wire wheels! But it is still a beautiful build!

Nice blending of some new and old elements. The color works really well on that, too.

 

Nice job, Jim.

Thank you guys.  I was going to try to lay down one of those real fancy paint jobs with different colors and tape all over the place.  It didn't work out very well.

 ​The paint caught my eye first of all and I appreciate the effort, personally I think it works on this one. Also like the Olds headlights and tail light treatment.  I prefer stock on the Hudson but, that's just me.  I always thought it looked custom already.  Nice job Jim.  :)

This is awesome Jim! By far one of the best Hudsons that I've seen. The '50's Olds headlights look right at home on this. Cool Car!

Thank you, fellas.  Took just little bit of putty and sanding to get the Olds headlights in there.

Love it!

I've toyed with the idea of using '50 Olds lights on a Hornet- looks like they look pretty good on the car. :wub:

Very nice build! The two colors of primer trick worked well - great idea! The Olds lights really make it look different - nice touch!
