    They were an optional generic item supplied across all makes from the 1930s onwards. They pop up all the time on the USA ebay. You need to measure the width of roof line and confirm what type of brackets you want as there is a few types available. Once purchased you need to have it painted to match your car. I'd try and find a club member with one to take some measurements. You could also get a panel shop to make one if you have a loan one to copy.

    @ken1962 this is my first time ever owning a hornet so I’m learning little by little so I’m going to ask some dumb questions, sorry, but I search only “Fulton sun visor” a lot online but they say they’re for different kinds of cars, not specifically with hornets. Are their other makes of cars (like mercury) that will fit hornets too? The Chevy truck sun visors have different brackets so I’m guessing those will not work with the hornet. Also I am aware of two brackets - Hollywood (larger) and standard (smaller). Would you know if Hollywood would fit the 1951?

    Look at my website... it explains the HUDSON STEPDOWN FULTON VISOR as well as the mounting brackets in detail.  The rarest visor goes on a 1954 and it takes a special mount which bolts through the roof versus clamp on.   https://hudsonrestoration1948-54.com/  click Accessories on the left side of the front page to access  Visor information.  IF you really want a visor... I suggest you contact Bent Metal and discuss your requirement. His contact information is in the VENDOR area of my website.  Otherwise you will be hunting for a used or New one (very rare) and paying the exorbitant ( what the market will bear) prices.

    Are these brackets for the windshield divider?  If so I would like one for my 1951 Hollywood.  Any information would be appreciated.  Thanks.

    Go to my website and use BENT METALS contact information found there to send your needs to him.  He makes all the correct brackets for the Fulton visors to fit a Hudson stepdown pre 1954.

    Hudson visor is back up on ebay for $997. Still seems pretty expensive IMO but that's cheaper than $1500. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-53-HUDSON-FACTORY-EXTERIOR-SUN-VISOR-ORIGINAL-COMPLETE-EXCEPTIONAL-COND/193614895583


    Also wondering, does anyone know which visor you would work for a 46 pickup? Did Hudson make visors for pre stepdown vehicles?

    I had a stepdown one when I had my 46 pichup back in the 70's, but I couldn't bring myself to drill holes in the cab to mount it, since trucks didn't have rain gutters.
