    Where are you located?  I also have a 49 Two door sedan For Sale in Florida.
    Has 1953 drive train ... 262 Twin H, Dual range HydraMatic and 307 Dana rear end. Heavy duty Front sway bar,12 Volts A/C. Amateur restoration but looks pretty darned good and drives great.

    Live in the past.... it's cheaper.

    I don't know if it is still available but I looked at a nice '54 Convertible near Seattle last year.  It has been in the WTN for 3 issues now.  It is a hydromatic, black with maroon leather.

    There's a 49 C6 conv with twin h added (and a few non original mods, but still  a nice looking car in the pics) on Craigslist in FL for $29ish.

    I checked on the convertible on Ebay.  The vin # says it is a Super 6 Not a Commodore. Also much modifications. If you are a preservationist. This would not make the grade. The seller knows nothing about the car. It does appear to be cosmetically great.. just not as represented. No center arm rest in back sear. windows converted to electric. etc.
    A fair price though!

    Live in the past.... it's cheaper.

    THIS IS A VERY RARE 1949 HUDSON COMMODORE 6 CONVERTIBLE. HAS THE TWIN H 6 CYL. ENGINE WHICH IS A RARE ENGINE. THE TRANSMISSION IS UP GRADED TO A MODERN 4 SPEED AUTOMATIC AND VINTAGE AIR CONDITIONING HAS BEEN ADDED WHICH WORK GREAT. HAS A SOLID DARK RED EXTERIOR WITH SOME VERY MINOR IMPERFECTIONS. THE RED AND TAN INTERIOR HAS SEATS, AND CARPETS THAT ARE NEW WITH GOOD WOOD TRIM AND A NEW SET OF GAUGES. HAS THE ORIGINAL OLD TUBE RADIO THAT DOES WORK AM ONLY. HAS A TAN WORKING POWER CONVERTIBLE TOP WITH RED BOOT TO MATCH INTERIOR. FRONT POWER WINDOWS REAR CRANK. THE CAR RUNS VERY WELL AND SHIFTS PERFECTLY. GREAT ABOVE AVERAGE DRIVER QUALITY VEHICLE THAT RUNS AND DRIVES FANTASTICALLY WITH SOME VERY MINOR COSMETIC IMPERFECTIONS. GOOD WORKING POWER TOP. FACTORY HUB CAPS WITH WIDE WHITE WALL TIRES. YOU CAN GET RIGHT IN AND TAKE IT TO A CRUISE NIGHT. THIS IS A CLASSIC COLLECTIBLE CAR WITH FULL ANTIQUE STATUS. A REAL SHOW STOPPER WHERE EVER YOU TAKE IT. REMEMBER THIS IS A CAR YOU CAN GET INTO AND DRIVE IT RIGHT AWAY.

    Dave said it's a super, not a commodore.  And there are several visible mods, but seems to be a nice looking car for the $$ otherwise.
