Parts and More Parts

New to the site. Recently started working on a 49 Commodore and am not to sure where to purchase certain items... starting with weatherstrip for the windshield and doors and probably 100 other odds and ends I havent even thought of. Any advice on where to start shopping would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance, Jason

    Welcome to the Forum!  For the rubber (and clutch) parts I would suggest Wildrick's,  With Hudsons, you won't find a huge supplier that sells all things, as you would with Fords or Chevvies.  Instead, you will find a number of suppliers, each of whom specializes in a handful of products.  On my Hudson Repro webpage you will find a list of a few of these suppliers, as well as a number of webpages listing people who make small quantities of specific repro parts for Hudsons.

    If you intend to keep your car awhile, I would suggest joining the H-E-T Club, which acts as a sort of clearinghouse of information and parts.  There are about 40 chapters around the U.S., and a number of local and regional meets and flea markets for Hudson parts both original and repro. And of course a yearly international meet.  The Club publishes a magazine with lots of ads for cars and parts, and sponsors its own website, and this forum as well.  Here is the homepage.  Here's the link

    My hudson Stepdown website has been on the Internet since 1998 helping owners with information on suppliers  and technical specifics to maintain and restore cars.  Each month our site entertains 2000 or more visits.  Good luck with your car.
