    Out of curiosity, what are the differences between a Wasp & Super Wasp?
  • GlowplugGlowplug Posts: 2,173Expert Adviser

    For 1954 Hudson had the following designations for Stepdowns
    Hornet, Hornet Special, Super Wasp and Wasp

    The Hornet was top of the line and came equipped with 308 engine and premium interior appointments
    The Hornet special was a step down with less trim and cheaper interior appointments
    Super Wasp was the next model with lots of trim ... similar to the Hornet Special and interior options that mimicked the Hornet Special.  Engine was 262 CU in standard
    Wasp ... lowest priced and equipped model... cheapest interior appointments minimal trim and came with a 232 engine... 

    Quick and dirty differences

    .....and the Wasp/Super Wasp is a shorter wheelbase than the Hornet and  Hornet special.
