1940 Hudson Traveler Business Coupe

This car is from the Pete Welzbacker Hudson collection in Seabeck Wa.  This is the first time this car has been offered for sale.  This car was found on the Oregon coast in the Bob Harbaugh Hudson museum in the late 1970s.  This is an unrestored all original car and a “good ten footer” Pete would say.  It has one repaint MANY years ago.  This is NOT a rusty car but has a little cancer showing in the normal places.  It has the original $12 dollar option factory Ox Blood red leather upholstery.  This is a Model 40T.  The engine was rebuilt in 1994.  It is a straight 6 175ci 92hp with a three speed transmission and working Overdrive.  The car did not originally have the “truck box” but it was an option and was installed by Pete.  All the memorabilia that Pete collected will be offered with the car.
