    Please don't think people are ignoring you.  Those side grilles have been impossible to find for years!  I'm kind of surprised that someone hasn't found a way to cast or 3D print them.  As to the rear license plate holder, you might want to mention the body style.  Sometimes the coupe and sedan versions are different, owing to the angle of the trunks.  If you happen to know anyone with a bracket, it might help to photograph theirs and then include the photo in your Forum message.  That's because a lot of people accumulate lots of Hudson parts over the years, but don't necessarily know which Hudsons they fit.  Another helpful way to find parts is to send out a mass e-mailing to Hudson vendors who advertise in the WTN.  Again: include a photo of the bracket so the vendors will know exactly what it looks like.

    Jon B is correct, the side grills are basically unobtanium. I did check for one of the guys who has a '39 about the possibility of making them using 3DCAD. The estimate was $1500.00 to create the CAD file and $1500.00 apiece to print them. So, if you are ready to invest $4500.00 we can get you started on the process.

     Mike is correct, I checked on 3D printing using the ones on my model 92 for a copy and it was around 5,000 to get started. Not enough people needing them to break even, so I dropped the project.

    I have side grills in perfect condition that I took to a sand caster that has done intricate  parts for me over the years. I asked him if he could duplicate these in bronze or aluminum?
    His answer was. I'm not a F------ Magician!

    The guy in Deerfield Michigan's name is Jan Kashur.  Real gentleman.  Sent me some club brochures, one called 'The Dover'.  He said his neighbor across the street may part out his 'model 92'  I don't know how to contact him.

    I think I may have a broken one but I think all the parts are there I could have a look if someone is interested

    I am interested,  do you know which side it is?

    Jan K's info is in the club roster I believe. I spoke with him a while back also, great guy!

    Hi there.
    As you can see all the parts are there and of course die cast can be repaired that's why I saved it for the last 35 years.  Please not I live in NewZealand so for some freight may be an issue

    I thought my dream had come true...a grill for my '39 model 92.  Waaaaa, you have the same side I have, drivers side.  I appreciate your help but Waaaaa,   maybe someone has two broken passenger sides I could make one out of.  Thank You and may God bless New Zealand.

    I don't have Jan K's info. Could someone ask him to re-contact me ...tks

    No Worries.
    Perhaps someone else may need the parts.  Thanks for your thoughts
