Information requested for 1929 Hudson mode "R"

Jon BJon B Posts: 7,088Administrator
A fellow in Virginia is in the process of restoring a '29 Super Six model R coupe. He asked two questions:

1. Which shop manuals / supplements were available for the '29 Super Sixes? As I recall, there was one complete manual (like for 1926 or 1927) then Hudson simply printed supplements for the succeeding year or two. Here is all I see listed for '29 Hudsons in the H-E-T online library:

A. 1926 Hudson and Essex Shop Manual
B. 1929 Hudson Technical Handbook
C. 1926 Hudson and Essex Shop Manual with 1927 Supplement

2. The fellow who's restoring this has most of the mechanical work done, but needs information on cosmetic details related to the 1929 R models, especially the engine bay details, colors etc. Do we have any '29 experts who might be willing to "field" questions of this nature, which were e-mailed to them?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    tell him to find the old Yahoo 16-29 Hudson Super Six group that is now moved to Facebook.

    Could you please post the URL?  I know where the regular "Hudson" facebook is, but I am not a registered facebook member.  I didn't see it listed at the Hudson facebook page.
