Light bulbs

I'm having a problem finding bulbs for my 1950 Hudson, None of the parts stores have them, or can get them.

    The bulbs shouldn't be hard to find.  They are fairly common.  For example, the table below is for a 1951 Hudson (from the Owner's Manual).  A quick search shows 55 bulbs are easily available at Advance Auto:  https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/sylvania-55-longlife-mini-bulb-pack-of-2-55llbp2/10030933-P    It is usually the part stores databases that don't recognize that they carry the part you need.

    Check ebay,  under Hudson, they regularly have listings for 6 volt bulbs for specific kames.  
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.

    Go to a good parts store like NAPA to find the odd ball stuff, the mass chains employ kids that don’t know crap about anything new much less an old car.

    agree with Geoff. I’ve found all of the 6v bulbs for my ‘34 Terraplane and ‘46 Hudson on eBay, either NOS or new stock.
