1948 Hudson Commodore

Classic Facts

46,000 original miles... Rust and accident free sheet metal and older repaint in two tone Blue and original Tan broadcloth / vinyl interior and door panels... Original condition survivor...

Just arrived, a rare complete example of Hudson's top of the line. Believed to have only 46K miles, rust and accident free. Now it will look great in your garage. I say that on every new vehicle, I learn new things. I am fascinated with the quality of some of the orphan car lines such as Studebaker,
Hudson and Packard. When in their success years, these car companies vehicles ex-ceeded the quality and workmanship of the Big Three and this car is an excellent example of that.

We normally would work to refresh and recondition a car like this amazing Hudson. We know these are popular cars for restomod conversion. We also know few origi-nal examples exist in this condition for full restoration. We ask that if interested, please call to discuss your needs and intentions. First of the Generation 3 Hudsons introduced in 1948 and one of the first completely new post WWII cars available.

This is believed a lifelong, rust free barn find from South Dakota. One very old lac-quer repaint in two town Blue. Excellent body panels. Amazing all original interior with only damage to the driver's seat
due to dryrot. These cars had very luxurious interiors with lots of wood and chrome, all in excellent condition. Even a dual glovebox! The rear seat compartment looks as new.

The exterior chrome and stainless is mostly very nice original condition, a result of the lifelong South Dakota climate. Very little chrome work needed on this car, just polishing. Older lacquer repaint in two tone Blue. Original Tan broadcloth interior and door panels. Original dash, carpet and headliner.
Excellent interior wood and chrome trim. Factory 262 cubic inch straight six engine. Three speed manual transmission. Original wheel covers & older widewhite tires.
