    I have a 92 convertible and I know of another one in Grand Rapids, Mi. 
    You don't see many 39's.

    If you are a member of the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club you can go to the home page ( hetclub.org ), click on the Member Button, it will then open up to Vehicle Registries.  You can then search for other 1939 owners.

    I saved a 92 from a hotrodder.  Sold it to a club member, with a 46 212 engine, since passed, and it was bought by another member in E.Greenbush, NY.  He drives it as a rat rod regularly. 

    I bought a 97 from the late Art Carkner.  Wouldn't cast a good shadow.  So rusted I couldn't save any of the body.  In fact, trailering it home on I90 in Albany, NY one of the doors came off, and thoughtfully being held on by a rope, was flying over the passing lane.  I saved the 254 and am running it in my 47 pickup.  Tranny, rear end Electric Hand column, etc saved.  Sold the grills on ebay.  I understand some people are laser cutting new ones.

    Definitely joint the National Hudson club, great people & it’s your best way to connect with others to find parts for your 92.

    Definitely join the National. Lots of great people and information available. 
    There are 16 members registered in the National under 92 series including 4 convertibles.
    I am working on a 92 series Brougham convert and have a 92 series 2dr sedan for parts.
    No I do not have any spare side grills.

    I wrecked a very rusted 1939 four door here in South Australia. Grill went to Canada, badges to California, still have the fenders and a few misc items. I cant sell or swap anything here.

    I have two 39 diecast center grills. One is excellent used, one is NOS, both have the very top fins broken. Photos are on my website. I either going to put them on eBay or take them to Hershey. I don’t want to ship them because they are heavy and fragile. Www.bellinghamautosales.com
