Within the last couple years, my affinity for '40s to (early) '60s cars converted to trucks has deepened. This one appears to be more well thought out then most. Have you figured out what truck cab was used to close the cabin yet?

Neat period piece.

Ed, it looks like you have really got your work cut out for you! But, that will be one spectaculasr car when you are done with it! And knowing your work, it will probably be done for Spring. I can't wait to see it!

Default The History OF Hudson

This appears to be a 1951 Hudson. The book History Of Hudson, page 282, has a drawing of a 1948 which looks very similar. However it states " Not inspired by this drawing, a prototype cab pickup with a 1949 serial number was reportedly built in 1948." You gotta love those 40's-50's vehicles!

Hey Ed, did you have to pay extra the firewood in the back? Good luck my friend for you are even more brave than Obama thinking 30,000 additional troops will fix the middle east problems.

Default Keep us posted on progress!

Wow, that IS a neat project! Rick is right Ed. If you decide to part with it, consider me first. I've seen a couple "el camino" stepdown Hudsons, but still can't reason in my mind why someone would go through the lengths of transforming a sedan into a truck instead of making do with a used factory produced truck from '46 or '47 back in the '50's. Now, for the purposes of a flower car, that's a different story. That works for me! Be sure to keep us posted on progress. If you're needing Hudson parts, I've got some connections.
