Oh yes, you don't see many of these old Stingers. For a little history, some of you may know this was the last year of production for Hudson Motor Car Company before merging with Nash, closing its Detroit, Michigan plant and moving it's plant to Kenosha, Wisconsin Oct 30 1954 becoming Hudson-Nash for a short period and later transitioning to AMC Rambler. Hudson began manufacturing in 1909 but 1948 to 1954 Hudson models proved to be one of "America's Roadable Cars" and the "Hornet" even captured early racing enthusiast's with a 1951 NASCAR certified stock "Twin-H" model that achieved 112mph. The rest is history except for the remaining survivors we enjoy today...

Let's get on with this solid survivor and it's known history. What we know about this car is that it was well maintained and belonged to a Dr Tom B. of Junction City, Colorado for many many years and up until 2007 when it changed hands. Included is a long list of repairs and maintenance receipts that he had performed over the years and a wonderful hand written letter describing it's operational characteristics (see photo copy). It also comes with the ORIGINAL owners manual and some dealer advertising brochures. He obviously protected and enjoyed this car, the interior upholstery and trim are amazingly well preserved as original...

The exterior shows very well and was appropriately refinished at some point's in it's life over the original color (Note: we studied the under rear deck areas and believe it was originally Pasture Green?) The older jamb to jamb refinish (Very Dark Plum? almost Black Metallic) is of unknown age but shows very well as a great driver with light patina, straight body panels, the doors shut solid, the fit is good and the chrome/trim appears as original with expected age/patina...

Mechanically sound and runs well with original major component Matching Number (see photos) Twin H power train under the hood. The current owner/collector states, "The car was in great shape but I did the following work on her to bring her up to my standards". The front suspension gone over with new tie rod ends and alignment, rear differential seal replaced, Oil pan was pulled for inspection as the Pan had a small dent and leaked so I had it repaired and installed new gaskets, original Carburetors rebuilt, New 6 volt Optima battery (car is 6 volt positive ground), Chassis was cleaned and painted, Tires are nearly new Coker radial white walls, Brake drums were pulled and inspected. Everything was cleaned and adjusted and power bled with new brake fluid,  Seals were changed out in power steering pump and system was flushed with new fluids, original Radiator cleaned and inspected (known items not working: Radio and clock)...

Well, there ya have it, you know what we know (also see 60 photo's & videos)! A good solid survivor with good solid history and ready to survive for another 58 years! Not Perfect and Not New (none are) but this is a good honest survivor with a no excuses operational presence. Good Day -Paul Harvey!
