Hey all, I've just purchased a 1932 Hudson Essex street rod project. My question is regarding the front windshield surround. How was the glass installed? Was it in a frame or no?
Thanks in advance Bob

I do know that 32 Essex Terraplane and 33 Terraplane windshields are different, so it's a safe bet that the 32 Big Essex is entirely different. All 32 Essex Terraplane windshield frames are flat across the top, similar to 33 Terraplane convertibles and roadsters. I had a good portion of a 32 Essex a few years back, and there was nothing I could find that resembled 32/33 Terraplane. Different beast altogether...
Thanks for all the info on the windshield and frame. New question does anyone reproduce any of the door bumpers or seals or really any rubber components that are found on these cars?
Call these guys for rubber parts
Thanks 33Hudson. How rare are these cars as it seems information and images on the internet seem to reveal modest results at best.
Again, thanks Jon.
Got my dash done. Gas tank built and installed
One door panel.
And Glass installed. Getting close now
