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.

After all the talk about the Hudson frame, those were welcome photos. :)

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!

Here's a locally owned, early Step Down Hudson (I'm guessing late 40's :huh: ) that I see every once in a while.

Both of these Hudsons belonged to the same owner.

The Maroon and Cream sedan had some mild custom changes made 16 years ago

The 48 Two door started life as a 4 door, and was finished about six years ago
