Nice collection of photos! If that doesn't get the old gears turning, nothing will!

The gray one at the top is nice. OMG, the vert that broke in two, that hurts. Thanks for posting the pics.

Those pics are of much nicer Hudson's than the other post about Hudson's. That grey one looks like it has the headlight bezels and grille from a '57 Olds.

Great finds Chuck!

I haven't seen any 1:1 drag cars yet though in my searching :(

Here's a Hudson forum for reference pics:

Yeah- I was really stoked when I found the coupe with the front end sheet metal off, then I stumbled across the stripped convert unibody... wow!

Dave- not sure if the panels bolted on. I know Studebakers of the same vintage had bolt-on body panels, but I have no clue about the Hudsons. I was really blown away by those inner fender housings, though!
