This Hudson was purchased on December 22nd, 1941 by the second owner, a young 19-year-old car enthusiast and has been owned by him ever since.
The car was purchased from the first owner in Washington State and has remained a Washington car ever since.
It is believed that the first owner was forced to sell the car when he was drafted for WWII.
During his lifetime with the car, the previous owner drove the car to and from his job at Boeing until he was drafted in 1943.
When he returned from the war, he continued to commute each day to his job in Boeing until the late 1970’s. Some modifications to the car include a new motor.
The original motor was replaced in the late 1950’s with a 1953 Mercury V8. The car currently has its Mercury V8 along with a manual 3-Speed transmission with overdrive.
Garaged and loved all of its life, this Hudson has recently been pulled from the car garage to be presented to all viewers and buyers at this year’s Lucky Collector Car Auction Spring Classic.
