1951 Hudson Hornet Club Coupe
Chassis no. 7A50353Z
Hudson highlighted the 1951 model year with the new Hornet model, empowering the already dramatic Step-down design with a larger engine. The heart of the Hornet was an evolution of the new Super Six engine introduced in the Step-down in 1948, but enlarged to 308 cubic inches. The most powerful six on the market, it was soon campaigning on the stock car tracks, rolling up six first-place finishes on the NASCAR circuit.

Acquired by the present owner in 2007, this Hudson Hornet coupe was restored a few years ago. The engine and Hydra-Matic transmission were completely rebuilt, and receipts for this work are available. Painted deep blue with harmonizing blue and white interior, it is in exceptional condition.

The odometer shows slightly more than 63,000 miles, believed to be correct. The car comes with its original tool kit and owner’s manual, and represents the opportunity to acquire an excellent example of a car with competition heritage.
