    Bumping to top as I see someone is looking for a Cv.  These are 49s but have the Hornet engines with Twin H and Overdrive.

    I looked at the Green Hornet several months ago (by detailed pics, not in person). Would be an OK car for someone who just wants a drive-and-have-fun Hudson CV.  Has a '56 308 (hydraulic lifters). However, would take a significant amount of cosmetic work to get it to even a reasonable #2 condition. Donnie restored it 10-12 years ago from a real basket case, and did a very respectable, amateur job. Seats are vinyl, HWs were replaced with cranks, etc. There are a few dings & chips in the paint, evidence of a slight oil leak, and at least some of the chrome would need re-plating to bring it to make it sharp. Appears (from video) to run well, top works, and so forth. That said, it'd be a fun car to own as a driver.
