Some of my Hudsons

Thought I'd try a few old pictures of the Hudsons I've had. One is the "47 convert (sans front bumper) in Albuquerque where I was at the time, along with my Nepal Ivory '46 convert (in Michigan) with my son holding a silver plate we won at a car show.  The "boy" is now 52 years old!  
     A '33 Terraplane that I got in Michigan while working on the '47 convert.  Friend called me and told me about this Hudson that was found in a garage.  It was an estate deal and the first $2500 buys the car.  I bought it as it was in incredible condition and totally complete.  I got it running very easily.  A guy in the Hudson club really bugged me to sell it, so I told him, you buy tires for it and pay my price, it's yours.  This picture is him leaving my place with it.
     Last picture is what the '47 convert looked like sitting in the weeds in Mass.  I had it trucked to Michigan and restored most of it there, finishing it (top and some chrome) in Albuquerque where I moved.

    Thank you for the photos. I've never seen a 47 convertible like the one in the first picture. Thanks for sharing.

    I don’t think that was a 33 but all nice rides.
