"January 2010 Winner"     1949 Hudson Commodore 6

Introduction / Overview: Bought the car on 1998 after being in a barn since 1963 with 29000 actual miles. I spent 4 years restoreing it and have put 7000 miles on it since. My wife and I drove it from NY to Michigan for the club's 50th anniversary, also the marque's 100th in July 2009. The 262 cid 123 HP engine only needed new rings to replace those broken getting it unstuck. Transmission is 3 speed with 27%overdrive with 4:56 rear end, giving about 2200 rpm at 60 mph, and will cruise comfortably all day at 65-75. Paint is very close to the original red/maroon, stamped R/M on the passenger door hinge. Tires are 7.10 x 15 Goodyear 4 1/4 WW super cushions.
