For Sale: 1947 Hudson Pickup

1947 Hudson Pickup -

This is a very unique looking truck, and you wont see many of them. I am moving and must sell it unfortunatly.

Currently it is not running, but it is an easy fix for someone who knows what they are doing. The electrical system works perfect, and cranks, but there is no spark. I have done a lot to this truck while I have owned it, including a disc brake conversion, rebuilt carbs, rebuilt gas tank, 12 volt conversion, new wiring harness from YnZ wiring in Redlands.

There is a problem with the transmission where reverse mostly doesnt work, but does from time to time.

I originally paid 8k for this truck and have put nearly 5k into it myself. I am currently asking for $8500 obo with no trades. If you are serious about your interest in this truck, please get in touch with any questions.

  • I had noticed this and had ment to comment on it! I have the feeling that here are those amoung us that take this site and hobby way too seriously... nice to see a sense of humor...

    I used to belong to the Corvette club, web sites, Barrett-Jackson committee and realized that one gas leak it was all over. These old cars (and new ones too ) are kewl, I love them, but they don't give you a kiss good night, bring home report cards....:p
