HUDSON 112 assembled from CKD in UK in July 1938

I'm now the proud owner of this magnificient 82 year old vehicle, which is very rare in the UK, possibly unique, and which bears the UK number plate ESR430.

There are plenty of pics and lots of words in The Automobile magazine issue of April 2020, pages 40 to 45 about my car, before I bought it a week or so ago.

Does anyone else have a Hudson 112 from 1938 in the USA:  there don't seem to be any in the UK?

    John , there are a few around in the club. I'll do you a list :)

    I'm also UK based and used to have a 1939 112. Have you joined or are you contemplating joining the club We'd love to have you and your car.

    I'll search out The Automobile as well

    Welcome to the "Open Forum", John.  This is part of the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club and you may wish to join, as it's a great resource for finding parts, technical information and fellow owners of cars like yours.  There are club members all over the world, including the UK.  Paul Butler is our able internet specialist!  As you may already know, for many years Hudson had a plant just outside London where the CKD vehicles were assembled.

    Would be interested to know what engine your car has.  Some British cars had an optional 16.9 h.p. engine, to  fall into a low tax bracket.
